SAN DIEGO, Calif.--Bristol-Myers Squibb has chosen WebLab ViewerPro from Molecular Simulations as its standard desktop molecular visualization and communication software. Using ViewerPro, researchers can construct 3D graphical models, visualize molecular structures, compute molecular geometries, analyze structural features, and incorporate molecular images into reports, web pages, and presentations.
In other news from Molecular Simulations, SGI and the software company have announced results of a functional genomics collaboration in which 22 genomes were processed and new 3D annotations for approximately 27,000 sequences were generated. New automated technology for high-throughput protein function assignment and annotation from Molecular Simulations was used to analyze genomic sequences from various public sources and generate functional assignments for their protein products. Molecular Simulations is delivering this new technology through two new software applications: Gene Atlas, a high-throughput automated pipeline for functional annotation of protein sequences on the genomic scale, and AtlasBase, the database that will store the results of GeneAtlas.
