Optibrium, a provider of software solutions for drug discovery, has launched a new version of StarVue, its free desktop application that enables scientists to quickly and conveniently view sets of compound structures and related data.
StarVue 1.1 is compatible with the recently released StarDrop 5, a software platform for the design and selection of high quality compounds in drug discovery. This means that compound data generated with StarDrop and other sources can be shared without the need for expensive spreadsheet plug-ins.
Improvements have been introduced to the way data can be browsed while retaining the innovative visual interface and capacity for organising, sorting and merging data sets that StarVue previously offered. Data can be easily loaded into StarVue from SD, MOL, SMILES or CSV files, as well as StarDrop's native format.
The close integration of StarVue and StarDrop makes the results of StarDrop's unique predictions and multi-parameter analysis available to a wider audience, improving the flow of information and a project team's ability to make effective decisions in targeting novel molecules with the required balance of properties to become drug development candidates.
