News Jun 05, 2009
IDBS announces the formation of a strategic relationship with the Department of Chemistry at the University of Cambridge.
The Department has selected IDBS’ E-WorkBook as its Chemistry Electronic Laboratory Notebook, and the two organizations have begun a collaborative R&D initiative, which will provide both organizations with significant cheminformatics assets and opportunities.
The Department of Chemistry at the University of Cambridge will deploy IDBS’ E-WorkBook and IDBS’ suite of chemistry technologies across its broad spectrum of research areas, and will use the system as a platform for many of its ongoing national, and international collaborative programmes.
IDBS and the Department of Chemistry will also set up a joint research and development effort, which will play a significant role in bringing new cheminformatics technologies to the market through IDBS products.
The use and ongoing development of IDBS’ chemical technology platform through this R&D collaboration will encompass many of these important new areas, including new approaches to structure authoring, drawing and representation, annotation, context-rich chemical ontologies, polymer support and the application of the electronic workbook environment as a tool to enhance research excellence.
