OxMol Releases New Chem-X, Adds Links to Tsar and Other Apps


OXFORD, UK--Oxford Molecular has released the latest version of Chem-X, its tool for combinatorial chemistry and library registration. According to Oxford, the new version is seamless and enables researchers to export combinatorial chemistry libraries designed and registered in Chem-X to RS3 Discovery, Oxford's software for Oracle-based chemical data storage and management. The new Chem-X also adds links to Tsar, the company's application for studying quantitative structure-activity relationships. The links allow structures to be registered in a Chem-X database and then imported into Tsar along with the accompanying Chem-X descriptors, which can now be used alongside those generated by Tsar. Chem-X 1999.1 also offers a range of modeling tools for studying small molecules and proteins for drug design purposes.
