ChemAxon JChem Base adopted for Japanese Consortium
ChemAxon’s JChem Base, a tool for the development of cheminformatics applications allowing storage and search of structural and non-structural data, will be licensed to the Japanese Consortium for Glycobiology and Glycotechnology Database (JCGGDB).
The National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) has taken the lead in the glycoscience part of a project led by the Japanese government, ‘Life Science Integrated Database Project’ (LSDB). AIST has been consolidating glycoscience-related databases within the country and building the integrated one. The ChemAxon's JChem software is to be used to enable the integrated chemical structure search in JCGGDB.
JChem Base can handle molecules, reactions, polymers, Markush and query structural contents. It will integrate a variety of database systems with web interfaces, and offer high-performance searches including substructure, similarity, exact, and superstructure searches. The system includes Marvin, a family of toolkits and graphic user interfaces for editing, viewing and visualising chemical structures and macromolecules.
