Symyx expands Biologics Advisory Board
Moving to improve informatics support in the biologics area of research, Symyx Technologies, is extending an invitation to life scientists in industry and academia to join an expanded Biologics Advisory Board. The purpose of the board is to encourage dialogue on core informatics strategies, technologies, and priorities supporting biologics workflows - including new web browser technology for biologics registration and integration of biologics registration capabilities into the enterprise Symyx Notebook ELN.
'Symyx is actively engaged in developing core technology supporting the capture and reuse of biologics information to accelerate R&D, and this technology is in place today at customer sites,' said Dr Trevor Heritage, president of Symyx Software. 'The Biologics Advisory Board offers an excellent opportunity for individuals and organisations at the forefront of today's biologics expansion to drive the delivery of effective, off-the-shelf biologics solutions built on Symyx technology. I encourage researchers with biologics expertise to join us in this important initiative. The next meeting of the board will be at the Symyx Symposium in Philadelphia this May.'
'Life Technologies is pleased to join the Biologics Advisory Board organised by Symyx,' said Dr Bruce Branchaud, global chemistry leader for Life Technologies. 'Life Technologies shares mutual customers with Symyx and has already initiated a chemical registration pilot built on Symyx technology which we would benefit from if extended to support our biologics. As a provider of biologics to life sciences companies, Life Technologies considers the Board a great opportunity to advise Symyx on how best to extend their current biologics technology to support the end-to-end acquisition, internal registration, and management of biologics by our mutual customers.'
