EMBL-DKFZ Chemical Genomics Facility Partners with Tripos on Cheminformatics

NEW YORK, July 20 (GenomeWeb News) - A chemical genomics facility managed by the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) and the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) will use informatics software and services from Tripos to help analyze small-molecule screening data, the company said today.


The screening facility, based in Heidelberg, Germany, was launched in March and employs six full-time researchers.


Under the terms of the agreement, Tripos Discovery Research, Tripos' UK-based chemistry division, will provide the facility with a chemistry database and other chemistry processes to assist with hit finding, hit follow-up, and chemical optimization of candidate molecules.


Financial terms of the collaboration were not disclosed.
