The TDDG Selects Dotmatics Data Management Suite
News Jan 27, 2014
The Translational Drug Discovery Group (TDDG) at the University of Sussex has selected Dotmatics’ web-based Electronic Laboratory Notebook, Studies Notebook, to complement their existing data management platform.
The TDDG is a multidisciplinary research group with integrated teams of in vitro biologists and medicinal chemists. The group is undergoing a process of rapid expansion with a portfolio of projects from hit identification to lead optimisation and consequently generates a large volume of complex and diverse data.
'Incorporating the Dotmatics software suite into our projects has enabled us to work very effectively and to process and analyse data in a highly efficient manner,' said Simon Ward, Professor of medicinal chemistry and director of the Translational Drug Discovery Group
Google has signed an agreement to join CERN's openlab program. openlab is a public-private partnership with companies and other research organizations to develop information and communication technology (ICT) solutions. Google wants to explore possibilities for joint research and development projects in cloud computing, machine learning, and quantum computing.
With machine learning systems now being used to determine everything from stock prices to medical diagnoses, it's never been more important to look at how they arrive at decisions. A new approach out of MIT demonstrates that the main culprit is not just the algorithms themselves, but how the data itself is collected.
