Cheminformatics Collection for Pipeline Pilot

Accelrys has released the first components of its Cheminformatics Collection for Pipeline Pilot, which simplifies searching of scientific databases, including chemistry data sources.

Pipeline Pilot is a software platform that streamlines integration and analysis of vast quantities of data flooding research informatics. It enables the construction of workflows by graphically combining components for data retrieval, filtering, analysis, and reporting. Component Collections enable Pipeline Pilot's powerful client-server platform to perform specific tasks such as scientific analyses, informatics, data mining and modelling, imaging or reporting.

The Cheminformatics Collection is designed to support the development of enterprise cheminformatics systems and applications using Pipeline Pilot. The List Management and Query Services (LMQS) system brings high-performance, chemistry-focused search and hit list management capabilities to Pipeline Pilot. It enables researchers and scientists to more efficiently manage and leverage vast amounts of complex scientific data. LMQS offers simplified searching of databases throughout the global R&D enterprise - whatever their type - providing fast, interactive web-based query and browsing via forms design, which allows scientists and researchers to drag and drop the data they need onto the form where they want it. It also offers Pipeline Pilot users simplified and unified access to databases to start their data analysis workflows.
