Free software to speed drug development

05 December, 2011 by Jason Maderer

Pharmaceutical, organic electronic and catalysis researchers will be able to speed their development processes using the latest computer modelling software developed at Georgia Tech. The computer program can study larger molecules faster than any other program in existence and is designed to improve knowledge about why certain molecules are attracted to each other and how those relationships can be ‘tuned’ to improve drug development. Rather than selling the software, the developers have decided to distribute their code free of charge as part of the open-source computer program PSI4.

Bio-Rad Laboratories KnowItAll software version 9.0

05 December, 2011 | Supplied by: Bio-Rad Laboratories Pty Ltd

Bio-Rad Laboratories has announced an unlimited spectral range and resolution feature in version 9.0 of its KnowItAll software. KnowItAll 9.0 allows users to store spectra in a user database at the precise range and resolution at which each spectrum was measured rather than being forced to conform to a fixed range and resolution for the entire database. As a result, users have more control over their data and can perform more accurate spectral searches that compare experimental spectra to reference databases.

Minimising challenges in biological modelling

01 December, 2011 | Supplied by: MathWorks Australia

Modelling has long played a key role in the drug discovery process, from isolating drug targets to screening and pharmacokinetics. Many pharmaceutical companies are currently facing patent expirations without replacement candidates in the pipeline or are struggling with high candidate attrition. Leaner pipelines results in necessary cost decreases, which can often lead to staff reductions. These struggles underscore the need for successful modelling in pharmaceutical R&D.

Significant does not equal important

24 October, 2011

Declaring a result ‘significant’ strongly suggests certainty, and that the result is large and important, but this is not what statistical significance implies. This is why statistical reformers are advocating a switch from significance testing to estimation.
