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
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.
Big Data Study Targets Genomic Dark Matter from Ocean Floor to Gut FloraNews
An international team led by computational biologist Fran Supek at IRB Barcelona develop a machine learning method to predict unknown gene functions of microbes.The system examines and compares ‘big data’ available on the metagenomes of human and environmental microbiomes.READ MORE
