Biotechnology Industry

From creating better drugs to more productive crops, biotechnology companies deliver change that propels markets forward. But for many companies, the technology that helps drive innovation can sometimes hinder it. There is too much data to manage. Software programs and databases are disconnected. Teams cannot easily share their findings. Newly available algorithms are difficult to integrate into existing workflows.  Previously garnered insight doesn't transition into new projects. Accelrys offers you unparalleled opportunity for customizing an integrated discovery platform that helps you overcome these challenges and drive your research to new levels.
