Core Informatics and OpenEye Scientific Software Forge Partnership
News May 07, 2013
Core Informatics, a leading provider of data management solutions to the life sciences, molecular diagnostics, and energy industries, and OpenEye Scientific Software, a leading developer of innovative molecular modeling and cheminformatics solutions for molecular discovery, announce a new partnership and the integration of OpenEye cheminformatics software into Core Informatics' web-based Laboratory Information Management System (Core LIMS) and Electronic Lab Notebook (Core ELN).
The Core LIMS and Core ELN offer a wide array of features through a flexible component-based architecture that provides organizations with individually tailored data management solutions. Core Informatics' introduction of an OpenEye powered Chemical Registration Application enables user access to the robust chemistry handling processes available in OpenEye's cheminformatics suite within the Core LIMS. OpenEye's focus on quality chemistry, speed and data integrity enable extraordinary performance in capabilities such as compound registration, unique compound identification, search and retrieval of exact and similar molecules, enhanced structure visualization, and reaction handling. Examples of this focus include use of canonical isomeric SMILES to uniquely identify compounds, multiple language translation, and a curated set of useful calculated properties.
"Our partnership with OpenEye exemplifies Core Informatics' desire to provide our client base access to an expanding array of cheminformatics tools," said Anthony Uzzo, President of Core Informatics. "We are additionally enthusiastic to draw upon OpenEye's unparalleled expertise in 3D molecular shape and electrostatics as future extensions to the Core LIMS."
Anthony Nicholls, CEO and Founder of OpenEye, remarked, "We are thrilled that users of the Core platform will have access to all the great cheminformatics developed at OpenEye. It has always been our 'core' mission to supply the chemistry community with the very best and most innovative software possible, and this partnership with Core is a big step towards that goal."
Small imperfections in a wine glass or tiny creases in a contact lens can be tricky to make out, even in good light. In almost total darkness, images of such transparent features or objects are nearly impossible to decipher. But now, engineers at MIT have developed a technique that can reveal these “invisible” objects, in the dark.
For scientists wrestling with problems as diverse as containing superhot plasma in a fusion reactor, improving the accuracy of weather forecasts, or probing the unexplained dynamics of a distant galaxy, turbulence-spawning shear flow is a serious complicating factor. A new supercomputer-powered effort aims to make modelling shear far easier.
