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."

Streaming Protocol Makes Gene Data Sharing Future-ProofNews
The Large Scale Genomics Work Stream of the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (GA4GH) has announced eight new implementations of its htsget protocol, a standard released in October 2017 for accessing large-scale genomic sequencing data online that does not depend on file transfers. The protocol and interoperability testing are reported in a paper released online this week in the journal Bioinformatics.
Algorithm Speeds Up Medical Image Analysis 1000 TimesNews
Medical image registration is a common technique that involves overlaying two images, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans, to compare and analyze anatomical differences in great detail. Researchers have described a machine-learning algorithm that can register brain scans and other 3-D images more than 1,000 times more quickly using novel learning techniques.
