Accelrys Releases Enhanced Suite of Accord Cheminformatics Solutions
Product News Feb 02, 2007
Accelrys announced the shipment of Accord Database Explorer 3.0, Accord SDK 6.2, and Accord Chemistry Cartridge 6.2, new releases from its Accord family of cheminformatics products for obtaining maximum value from chemical data and for building configurable chemistry-enabled solutions.
Accord Database Explorer 3.0 (ADE 3.0) is a flexible standalone desktop database client designed to enable users to access multiple databases held locally or centrally and search across them from within a single query.
Accord Software Development Kit (SDK) and Accord Chemistry Cartridge are building blocks for constructing configurable chemistry-enabled software applications.
Accord SDK is a programming toolkit which allows users to develop applications addressing problems as diverse as combinatorial chemistry, property prediction, and database publishing. It can be used to chemistry-enable existing informatics systems or extend the capabilities of other Accord products and solutions.
New features in Accord SDK 6.2 include a new CIP calculator and improved performance and support for the Accord Chemistry XML format, a new open and extensible format that enables users to store and transfer chemistry data to third party applications without losing Accord-specific features.
Accord Chemistry Cartridge enhances the power of Oracle for chemical applications by adding a new chemistry data type, which can allow users to build solutions that store, index, and search for chemical structures.
Accord Chemistry Cartridge 6.2 can provide up to 12X faster sub-structure search performance over the previous release, support for multiple processors when performing chemistry searching and other performance enhancements designed to enable users to build high-performance, chemistry-aware applications and solutions.
“These exciting new Accord releases significantly extend and augment the existing Accord family of products and will provide great benefits to our customers,” said Dr. Frank Brown, Chief Science Officer of Accelrys. “With the launch of ADE 3.0, chemists now have a real alternative to MDL’s ISIS/Base ,” continued Dr. Brown.
“The release of the Accord SDK and Accord Chemistry Cartridge further enhance the capabilities of these robust components by providing enhanced performance and chemistry capabilities to enable our customers to build chemistry-enabled solutions of the highest quality,” concluded Dr. Brown.
