Japanese University Taps Cresset's Software for Computational Chemistry Research


NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Cresset said this week that Nagoya University's Institute of Transformative Biomolecules (ITBM) has licensed Forge, its computational chemistry software suite for understanding structure-activity relationships and molecular design for biomolecular research.

"The focal point of ITBM is to develop transformative bio-molecules that will be key to solving urgent problems at the interface of chemistry and biology," Ayato Sato, associate professor, head of research promotion division, and the chief coordinator of ITBM Chemical Library Center, said in a statement. "We are confident that licensing Cresset’s software will accelerate our research to find candidates of transformative bio-molecules."

Financial and other terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
