I love books. Real books, made of paper, ideally hard cover and properly bound with needle and thread. And I have assembled a nice library over time. On the other hand, due to peculiar choices of where to live and where to work, and due to the nature of my job, I essentially live on […]
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 […]
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 […]
I was recently alerted by someone about chunks of text copied from an editorial by my colleague David Wild in the Journal of Cheminformatics  appearing in another article by Nutan Prakash and Dinta A. Gareja in the Journal of Proteomics and Bioinformatics . While David’s article is cited as a reference, those larger chunks of text […]
There are a few seats left for the 5th German Conference on Cheminformatics in Goslar and we’ll extend the deadline a bit to give you the chance to register if you haven’t done so. The GCC is a great chance to meet with around 200 other participants from all areas of life science informatics and […]
Our new Journal of Cheminformatics has as of today, 22/07/09, published 11 papers since its launch in March of this year. One of those 11 papers has now reached the “highly accessed” status after it has recently been downloaded more than 1000 times. This is time for a celebration since it again demonstrates the superior […]
Congratulations to the ChEBI team for publishing ChEBI version 57. ChEBI Release 57 now contains links to NMRShiftDB. Search ChEBI for “caffeine” PuTTY quit command , for example, and you find the link to the carbon NMR spectrum of caffeine on the “automatic XREFs” page of ChEBI, in the “Small Molecules” section. ChEBI now contains […]
The number of structures and spectra in NMRShiftDB now exceeds 31.000 and 35.000 puttygen ssh , respectively. The number of proton spectra alone is now 12.934. This is due to NMRShiftDB developer Stefan Kuhn in my group importing a recent donation from our collaborators Reinhard Dunkel and Heinz Kolshorn. Thanks to Heinz and Reinhard for […]
I’m attending the 3rd International Biocuration Conference in Berlin, which looks like a pretty successful meeting in terms of numbers of participants. Seems like somewhere between 100 and 200 participants. It looks like the time for recognition for biocuration and curated biological resource has come. The International Society for Biocuration has been inaugurated yesterday. People […]
The Cheminformatics and Metabolism group at the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI) in Hinxton, Cambridge, Uk, has an opening for a phd position. The EBI is one of four outstations of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) and is a great place to do research in chemistry, cheminformatics and drug discovery. In all of these areas, […]
