Pfizer has joined Accelrys consortium

Pfizer has joined the Accelrys Enterprise Cheminformatics Consortium – a collaborative project to develop cheminformatics software components and services for commercial companies.

Mark Emkjer, president and CEO of Accelrys, explained the importance of such a collaboration: ‘Close partnership and collaboration with industry is essential for Accelrys to develop software and services that help solve critical research problems.’

This is the latest in a long line of successful consortia led by Accelrys, which have worked in areas such as catalysis, combinatorial chemistry and nanotechnology. Consortium members collaborate in directing research and development activities to solve business issues, and have exclusive use of the resulting products for some time afterwards.

Building a Smart Laboratory 2018 highlights the importance of adopting smart laboratory technology, as well as pointing out the challenges and pitfalls of the process

Feature

Informatics experts share their experiences on the implementing new technologies and manging change in the modern laboratory

Feature

This chapter will consider the different classes of instruments and computerised instrument systems to be found in laboratories and the role they play in computerised experiments and sample processing – and the steady progress towards all-electronic laboratories.

Feature

This chapter considers how the smart laboratory contributes to the requirements of a knowledge eco-system, and the practical consequences of joined-up science. Knowledge management describes the processes that bring people and information together to address the acquisition, processing, storage, use, and re-use of knowledge to develop understanding and to create value

Feature

This chapter takes the theme of knowledge management beyond document handling into the analysis and mining of data. Technology by itself is not enough – laboratory staff need to understand the output from the data analysis tools – and so data analytics must be considered holistically, starting with the design of the experiment
