EUGM 2013 - Jon Patterson (ChemAxon) ChemAxon Platform for Scientists


Published on

As scientists we need to deal with inordinate amounts of data every day: we generate, retrieve and manipulate new data as part of our job. Simple excel worksheets are not the solution in the modern era of drug discovery, development and beyond. In this session learn how you can use and integrate ChemAxon’s tools to solve your day-by-day tasks more quickly and efficiently. Whether you prefer a desktop, web-based or touch screen application, we have a solution. Learn how to manipulate your data using Instant JChem (on your desktop or via Web layer) or draw sophisticated queries using Marvin or our new addition Marvin for Java Script (Marvin JS) to reduce the search times, visualize your data in 3D using Marvin Space, export and explore chemistry with the Ubiquitous Excel using the JChem for Excel plugin and share ideas and data with you colleagues and/or collaborators using Crais Board. Integrate our tools in Pipeline Pilot and Knime protocols and generate new data to expedite your processes. Analyze your data using Spotfire through Instant JChem. Also learn how our newest addition, Plexus, will help you do you tasks on desktop using web technology.
