Downloads and Upgrades: ChemBioOffice suite


PerkinElmer has launched a new version of its ChemBioOffice informatics suite that includes improvements to the ChemBioDraw and ChemBio3D modules and provides cloud storage for improved data sharing.

In version 13.0, the ChemBioDraw program includes an improved biopolymer toolbar that lets users make modifications to larger therapeutic agents and molecular structures such as amino acids, peptides, RNA, DNA, and nucleotides. Users can now also copy and paste sequences into the program and manipulate part of or entire sections of the sequences.

The ChemBio3D program enables synthetic chemists and biologists to generate 3D models and it can be used to evaluate data input and provide information such as the degree of fit of compounds into a receptor. It also acts as a hub for other 3D modeling programs and provides access to other computational and molecular modeling programs.

The addition of a sharable cloud location into ChemBioOffice makes it easier for scientists to collaborate by securely sharing and importing ChemBioDraw and ChemBio3D structures, reactions and drawings with other scientists around the world, the company said.
