Dotmatics Introduces Blueprint to Provide Self-service Data Analysis for Medicinal and Synthetic Chemists

Dotmatics Introduces Blueprint to Provide Self-service Data Analysis for Medicinal and Synthetic Chemists

  • Self-service scientific data visualization and analytics application designed to empower chemists working on small molecule discovery projects

  • Blueprint provides guided wizard-driven analytics for bench scientists to analyze project data, design compounds and make informed decisions, faster

  • Web-based solution fully integrated into existing Dotmatics applications to provide a seamless end-to-end chemistry design workflow

Dotmatics Ltd, a scientific informatics software and services company that is driving the automation of laboratory data workflows for scientific discovery and innovation research, today announced it has expanded its product portfolio to include Blueprint, a self-service, scientific visualization and analytics application for small molecule discovery. The introduction of Blueprint broadens the existing Dotmatics suite for chemistry design workflows, adding to the Company’s comprehensive selection of web-based solutions.

As drug discovery research continues to become increasingly data-driven, the limited availability of specialist data scientists and computational chemists, in addition to the complexity and restrictions of legacy cheminformatics tools, have become a bottleneck for research organizations. There is now a high demand for self-servicing tools, specifically aimed at non-data-specialists, to increase workflow efficiency and staff productivity. Designed to support project scientists with minimal training, Blueprint employs guided wizard-driven analytics to enable users to analyze structure-activity data, design compounds and rapidly make the best-informed decisions with real-time data. The application also facilitates collaboration in-house or with external partners. Blueprint seamlessly integrates into the existing Dotmatics suite of search and experiment capture capabilities which support the full drug discovery cycle, from compound design to analysis. Within a single workflow, scientists can assemble project data across multiple third-party systems; explore molecular data sets; design new molecular series or libraries; and automatically generate experiments in their electronic lab notebook.

Dr Stephen Gallagher, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer Dotmatics, commented:Blueprint is a key new component of the Dotmatics solution

Health Chief Plants Cannabis As Thailand Eyes Medicinal Market

Health Chief Plants Cannabis As Thailand Eyes Medicinal Market

Anutin Charnvirakul said the administration wanted ‘to support with sincerity patients who need to use cannabis for treatment’

Thailand’s health minister helped plant cannabis seedlings Thursday as the government nurtures plans to harvest the multibillion-dollar potential of medical marijuana.

The kingdom in 2018 became the first country in Southeast Asia to legalise medical marijuana, although many Thais have long used the herb in traditional treatments.

The government has invested in the extraction, distillation and marketing of cannabis oils for use in the health industry.

Wearing a hairnet and green gardening gloves, deputy prime minister Anutin Charnvirakul joined health officials planting seedlings at Thailand’s second industrial-scale marijuana greenhouse at Nong Yai, Chonburi province.

In a statement, Anutin said the administration wanted to “support with sincerity patients who need to use cannabis for treatment”.

The Government Pharmaceutical Organisation’s 1,550-square-metre facility will house 1,300 plants supplying marijuana products to hospitals and clinics.

The government wants to further broaden Thailand’s laws on cultivating cannabis.

A bill is expected to go before parliament in the coming weeks which would allow individuals to grow the plant for medicinal purposes — something only state agencies can do currently.

The minister said he hoped the changes could boost rural incomes across the northeast by allowing farmers to grow and sell the plants.

Recreational use and trade of marijuana in Thailand is still illegal, however, and convictions carry up to 10 years in prison.
