Tripos, Bristol-Myers Squibb Extend FormsBuilder Collaboration

NEW YORK, Sept. 25 (GenomeWeb News) - Tripos and Bristol-Myers Squibb have extended their agreement to integrate Tripos' FormsBuilder technology into BMS' Smart-Idea application, the companies said today.


The FormsBuilder platform, which enables researchers to customize their own forms and combine queries requesting chemical structures with more traditional data, will be installed at BMS in 2004.

Last year, BMS hired Tripos to develop and deploy its Smart-Idea technology, which at the time was known as Structure Modeling and Analysis Research Tool - Integrated Data for Experimental Analysis. The system uses Tripos' MetaLayer technology to integrate experimental data with a suite of analytical tools that provide a "virtual workbench" for BMS chemists and biologists.
