Internship in Bioinformatics/Cheminformatics

We are looking for a candidate for an internship/trainee position in bioinformatics/cheminformatics at the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) to work on a high-performance generator for chemical structures. This position requires strong programming skills in Java, a reasonable working knowledge in chemical structures and graph theory as well as an interest in learning about Apache Hadoop […]

Journal of Cheminformatics receives Impact Factor of 3.42

We just wanted to update you with some good news from the Journal of Cheminformatics. The Thomson / ISI 2011 Journal Impact Factors were just released, and the Journal of Cheminformatics received an Impact Factor of 3.42 – the first year we have been given an impact factor. This is very high for a new […]

Open Position for a Scientific Database Curator/Annotator in ChEBI team

We are looking for a Scientific Database Curator/Annotator to work on the ChEBI (Chemical Entities of Biological Interest) project within the Cheminformatics and Metabolism Team. The position is based at the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) located on the Wellcome Trust Genome Campus near Cambridge in the UK. The successful applicant will work on the existing […]

Philadelphia Symposium on Cheminformatics Opportunities in Personalized Medicine and Chemogenomics.

We are accepting submissions of abstracts for consideration for an ACS Division of Chemical Information (CINF) Symposium on Cheminformatics Opportunities in Personalized Medicine and Chemogenomics. This session will bring together researchers investigating computational chemistry and cheminformatics to study the development of drugs based on our knowledge of genomes and to develop better methods to personalize […]

CDK-Taverna paper published

We are glad to announce that our article about CDK-Taverna, an open workflow solution for cheminformatics, is now online on BMC Bioinformatics. CDK-Taverna, which lives at http://www.cdk-taverna.de/, features more than 160 workers for various tasks in molecular informatics. The workflow paradigm allows scientists to flexibly create generic workflows using different kinds of data sources, filters […]

Web chemistry components in JavaScript

Colleague Noel O’Boyle has already reported it: There is now an open collection of javascript-based chemistry components for the web, called ChemDoodle, released under GPL license by iChemLabs, inc. The stuff looks really neat. The collection comprises viewers, an editor, a look-up component (try entering accession numbers such as “1”, “2” or “3” (you get […]

1st Call for Papers: Computational Aspects of Metabolomics (CINF Symposium, ACS Spring 2010)

First Call for Papers: Computational Aspects of Metabolomics 239th ACS National Meeting San Francisco, March 21-25, 2010 CINF Division We now invite papers for our symposium on computational aspects of Metabolomics at the 239th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society (ACS) in San Francisco next spring.

What do we expect from a chemical structure editor applet?

My team at the EBI maintains a couple of databases [1,2,3] dealing with various aspects of (bio-) organic chemistry. All of them need chemical structure editor applets where users can specify queries for substructure searches and which are used by our curators for data entry.The development of these databases is funded by the European Union […]
