In the current research environment, data is certainly not in short supply. Every organization has an abundance of chemical structure, screening and property data. Putting data of these types of together in a coherent way so researchers can make the best-informed decisions about which compounds to pursue is more of a challenge. To this end, NetGenics has developed DiscoveryCenterTM, a software environment that provides an integrated view of chemical and biological information held in both internal and external repositories. DiscoveryCenter allows researchers to search on and view chemical structures in the context of screening data, biological sequences, analytical testing data, etc. What's more, its flexible architecture allows us to plug in the user's choice of data sources, including molecular property calculators. The right information in the right context gives researchers just what they need.
