We are developing a system of managing and mining chemoinformatics tools and data that uses web services and intelligent agents. Using this system, scientists are able to make high level requests to intelligent agents, which then use other agents and web services to carry out the request, employing a variety of computational tools and databases. In this poster we describe how use-cases can be implemented as workflows of web services wrapped around chemoinformatics tools and databases, thus enabling previously complex queries and requests to be carried out simply. The potential impact of systems such as this on the use of early stage drug discovery information will also be addressed.
