Introducing BIOVIA Insight and Insight for Excel
Presenters:
Rob Brown Ph.D., Senior Director, Life Sciences

Andrew Le Beau Ph.D., Advisory Product Manager, Platform Technologies

BIOVIA Insight, the latest web-based application to join the BIOVIA Cheminformatics Suite, is designed to enhance productivity and innovation within discovery research teams by providing them with a modern, collaborative, scientific decision-support environment. Insight gives research scientists the ability to gather and analyze data and to collaborate within their teams, organizations, and across networked external organizations, to gain insight into their data and so make fast, effective decisions about how to make progress on their research projects.

BIOVIA Insight for Excel is an add-in to Microsoft Excel providing scientific data analysis capabilities within the familiar spreadsheet environment. Like Insight, Insight for Excel supports effective decision-making through the aggregation, analysis and presentation of scientific data.

This webinar will introduce both Insight and Insight for Excel, highlighting key features of the applications.

Biological Data Management with the New BIOVIA BioRails Products
Clifford Baron, Director of Biology Product Marketing, BIOVIA
Andrew Lemon, Managing Director, The Edge

There is increasing pressure to improve the efficiency and reduce the cost of drug discovery and development processes. Due to the complexity of biological experimentation, this is especially acute across the biological disciplines, from early screening all the way to preclinical safety assessment. In this webinar we shall overview the new BIOVIA BioRails DM and BioRails PTO products, which provide an integrated data management system that adopts a workflow approach based on a request-action-decision paradigm. We shall present a set of use cases in which the BioRails products are used for a range of activities from HTS to ADME to analytical testing, showing how the system can be used to request, schedule and execute biological experiments whilst recording key performance indicators. We will also discuss the benefits of leveraging this technology with the Symyx Notebook by BIOVIA.

Enhancing Productivity of Internal and Externalized Research through Integrated Cheminformatics Systems
Rob Brown, Senior Director for Life Sciences, BIOVIA
Frederic Bost, Director of Information Services, SCYNEXIS

Cheminformatics applications provide a means for scientific research companies to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of their discovery projects by ensuring that their scientists have straightforward and timely access to all available data from across the organizations allowing them to make better decisions faster. The BIOVIA Cheminformatics Suite is a set of applications that let users register, search, mine and analyze information on chemical structures and reactions, chemically modified sequences and associated data such as inventory, assay and analytical results.

The suite also enables the sharing of information between collaborators and CROs as part of multi-company discovery projects. This is increasingly important as discovery research has become an externalized process in which research is conducted across a network of research scientists that are in-house, at academic and research institute collaborators and at contract research organizations (CROs). In these collaboration networks chemical synthesis, biological assay development and execution, safety assessment and all other aspects of the process may all be conducted by different organizations. The nature of the collaborations is also changing from “fee-for-service” to collaborative development of IP. These expanding collaboration networks present significant IT challenges as data must be exchanged between partners in the collaboration quickly and securely to allow the projects to proceed as efficiently as possible.

In this webinar we will introduce the BIOVIA Cheminformatics suite and show how it has been used to increase the efficiency of the research process. We will cover the following recently announced products:

  • BIOVIA Chemical Registration is an intuitive, easy-to-use, web-based application that supports zero-install deployment. Graphically built Pipeline Pilot protocols make the application easy to configure and extend to satisfy business and application requirements. Built-in web service capabilities streamline scientific workflows by enabling scientists to register molecules directly from other software applications including Electronic Lab Notebooks. The underlying architecture supports fast and easy database schema configuration, making it possible for research IT to configure additional attributes for chemical entities without having to customize the database and application.
  • BIOVIA HEOS® is a SaaS based solution for collaborative drug discovery now being sold by BIOVIA. HEOS is a cloud-based workspace in which multiple, disparate companies, academic collaborators or CROs can exchange scientific data securely and in real-time. By using HEOS, project teams across all organizations can have instant access to information that they are authorized to see about their projects. For companies managing collaboration networks, individual partners can be spun-up and down very quickly as the collaboration network changes, and collaboration data is kept separately from internal research data until such time as it is appropriate to bring it back into in-house systems.

Introducing BIOVIA Chemical Registration 3.0
Keith Taylor, Advisory Product Manager, BIOVIA, and Rob Brown, Senior Director Life Science Marketing, BIOVIA

In this webinar we will introduce the all new BIOVIA Chemical Registration system. Registration is an essential informatics task in the research and discovery cycle that captures which compound(s) have been made and whether they are novel (unique) or are new lots (instances) of a compound that has already been synthesized or purchased by that organization in the past.

By attending this webinar,

  • Medicinal and synthetic chemists will learn how BIOVIA Chemical Registration provides a simple and intuitive way to register the compounds that they have made.
  • Research and development managers will learn that how they can use the system to ensure that the IP around their project’s compounds is protected and how they can easily monitor the registration activities of their teams
  • Research IT and cheminformatics specialists will learn how the system provides significant benefits in implementation, configuration and maintenance including
  • Zero install deployments through the use of interactive web clients
  • How to provide collaborator and CRO access with minimum configuration through the use of the web clients
  • How the system is easy to maintain and extend through configuration and application extension using graphical programming within Pipeline Pilot protocols rather than coding
  • How the provision of Web Service APIs allow simple integration of registration functionality into other applications and user interfaces such as an ELN
