At his blog, Russ Altman discusses the increased interest in using informatics to analyze small molecules. He says this trend is due to the availability of small molecule information at PubChem and other sites. "A critical need is open source tools for small molecule informatics processing, and I believe these are starting to emerge (not fast enough, I have a student looking hard for a basic package upon which we can build)," he writes.
Bioinformatics, Cheminformatics, Small Molecule Informatics, Oh My!
