Interoperability and the Blue Obelisk

  1. 1. Building bridges for chemical informationInteroperability and the Blue Obelisk<br />Noel M. O’Boyle, et a lot of al<br />The Blue Obelisk is a group of people and projects with an interest in Open Data, Open Standards and/or Open Source in chemistry<br />http://blueobelisk.org <br />
  2. 2. Open BabelInteroperability of chemical file formats<br />Support for interconversion of 111 chemical file formats<br />Can read 82 formats<br />Can write 85 formats<br />
  3. 3. Chemical Markup LanguageExchange of chemical information<br />File format designed for exchange and storage of chemical information<br />It is XML<br />Extensible – can store application-specific information<br />No need to write a parser<br />
  4. 4. CinfonyInteroperability of cheminformatics toolkits<br />mol = cdk.readstring(“smi”, “CC(=O)Cl”)<br />Makes it easy to access different toolkits<br />Complementary features, different implementations of same features (e.g. 2D drawing)<br />Avoid vendor lock-in, balkanisation of field<br />Small and simple API:<br />CDK<br />OpenBabel<br />
  5. 5. cclibInteroperability in computational chemistry<br />A set of parsers and algorithms for computational chemistry log files<br />ADF, Firefly, GAMESS-UK, Molpro, ORCA, among others<br />Provides a simple and standard interface to the results of computational chemistry calculations<br />Goal isto facilitate the implementation of algorithms that are not specific to a particular computational chemistry package<br />Population analysis, for example<br />
  6. 6. Building bridges for chemical informationInteroperability and the Blue Obelisk<br />Development of Standards<br />OpenSMILES<br />Resurrecting chemistry from…<br />Papers OSCAR3<br />Images OSRA<br />IUPAC names OPSIN<br />Development of Shared Resources<br />Blue Obelisk Data Repository<br />Guidelines for Open Data<br />Panton Principles<br />For more information, drop by the poster…<br />Interested in participating?<br />http://blueobelisk.org<br />
