The Chemical Structure Association (CSA) Trust Grant Program is now accepting applications, from young researchers with an interest in systems and methods used to store, process and retrieve information about chemical structures, reactions and compounds. You can view the details here and can get in touch with Bonnie Lawlor (email@example.com) if you have any questions.
This is a follow on to my previous post that described a recent paper where we explored a few ways to characterize the differential activity of small molecules in dose response screens. In this post I wanted to highlight some aspects of this type of analysis that didn’t make it into the final paper. TL;DR […]
As part of a project I was wondering about reports of surveys that collected chemists assessments of differnt things. More specifically, I wasn’t looking for crowd-sourcing efforts for data curation (such as the in the Spectral Game) or data collection. Rather, I was interested in reports where somebody asked a group of chemists what they […]
In my previous post I talked mainly about why there isn’t a large showing of chemistry in the cloud. It was based of Deepaks post and a FriendFeed thread, but really only addressed the first two words of the title. The issue of collaboration came up in the FriendFeed thread via some comments from Matthew […]
There’s been an interesting discussion sparked by Deepaks post, asking why there is a much smaller showing of chemists and chemistry applications in the cloud compared to other life science areas. This post led to a FriendFeed thread that raised a number of issues. At a high level one can easily point out factors such […]
