Molecular Simulations, Time Logic Collaborate On Data Analysis Systems


SAN DIEGO, Calif.--Molecular Simulations, a molecular modeling and simulation software company here, will team up with bioinformatics hardware supplier Time Logic to develop new genomic data analysis systems for the drug discovery informatics market. The new systems will integrate Molecular Simulations' Gene Explorer software with Time Logic's high-speed DeCypher II server. Both products rely on internet technology, so the new system will be accessible through Macintosh, PC, or Unix systems via Netscape Navigator. The system can also be interfaced with corporate internet or intranet networks.

"The addition of Time Logic's DeCypher II accelerator to our Gene Explorer product permits interactive access to computationally intensive search results," remarked Mick Savage, Molecular Simulations' president and CEO. Richard Offerdahl, Time Logic's CEO, added, "Sensitive but computationally demanding genomic data analysis functions within Molecular Simulations' Gene Explorer product suite are greatly accelerated by the addition of our DeCypher II computational genomics platform. This agreement demonstrates that Time Logic and Molecular Simulations are committed to open systems that give the customer access to the best bioinformatics technologies in the world."
