Core Informatics and ChemAxon Renew Partnership
News Apr 06, 2013
Core Informatics, a leading provider of data management solutions to the life sciences, molecular diagnostics, and energy industries, and ChemAxon, a leader in providing chemistry software solutions and consulting services for life science research, have renewed a multi-year partnership. The Partnership, established in 2007, joins ChemAxon's growing cheminformatics toolkit suite with Core Informatics' web-based Laboratory Information Management System (Core LIMS) and Electronic Lab Notebook (Core ELN).
The Core LIMS & ELN offer a wide array of features through a flexible component-based architecture that provides organizations with individually tailored solutions to support their data management needs. The Chemical Registration Application, powered by ChemAxon, enables users within the Core LIMS to lever the power of ChemAxon's cheminformatics toolkits designed to optimize the value of chemistry information in pharmaceutical R&D. The application's functionality includes, but is not limited to, compound registration, structure visualization and searching, reaction enumeration and calculated properties.
"ChemAxon has been a valued partner over the last 5 years," said Anthony Uzzo, President of Core Informatics. "More importantly, the union of ChemAxon's toolkit suite with the structured data management environment of the Core LIMS continues to provide competitive advantage for our existing and new clients in an important business segment for the organization."
"Our long-standing partnership with Core has been very productive for both companies and to the over 25 customers using the combined platform. It is a great example of how our chemistry toolkit, which is the partner of choice for companies wishing to extend their chemistry capabilities, helps to deliver a real value for money and high performance solution to the market," said Alex Drijver, CEO of ChemAxon.
Analytical Tool Predicts Disease-Causing GenesNews
Predicting genes that can cause disease due to the production of truncated or altered proteins that take on a new or different function, rather than those that lose their function, is now possible thanks to an international team of researchers that has developed a new analytical tool to effectively and efficiently predict such candidate genes.
Researchers Move Closer to Completely Optical Artificial Neural NetworkNews
Researchers have shown that it is possible to train artificial neural networks directly on an optical chip. The significant breakthrough demonstrates that an optical circuit can perform a critical function of an electronics-based artificial neural network and could lead to less expensive, faster and more energy efficient ways to perform complex tasks such as speech or image recognition.
