ChemInformatics collaboration formed
Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS), a division of the American Chemical Society, has begun a long-term collaboration with InfoChem, a company dealing in chemical structure and reaction technology as well as data mining in chemical science documents, headquartered in Munich, Germany.
Under the new collaboration, research teams at CAS and InfoChem will work together to explore technology frontiers in the field of cheminformatics. The joint team is currently researching and developing technology to identify chemical information in text and to semantically enrich chemical information documents. The partners will also continue to focus on chemical substance information and ways to extract, derive, store, communicate and interpret that information.
