ChemAxon Launches JChem 3.2 With Added .NET Compatibility and New GUI's for Canonicalization, Library Enumeration and Clustering

Nov 22, 2006, 00:00 ET from ChemAxon Ltd.

    BUDAPEST, Hungary, November 22 /PRNewswire/ -- ChemAxon, a software
 solutions provider for life sciences today announced the release of version
 3.2 of its Java based cheminformatics suite, JChem.
     As the first commercially available Java based cheminformatics toolkit
 technology, JChem provides an OS independent platform for building
 cheminformatics capabilities for life science research. Core functions of
 the toolkit include, structure editing and visualization, property
 prediction, structure management and search, library enumeration and
 profiling. The release of version 3.2 sees many new features and
 improvements including .NET support, new GUI's and an installer to simplify
 installation and operation as well as new reaction search functionalities.
     As a toolkit based development platform, all JChem functionality is
 available via a full application programming interface (API) which allows
 web and application developers and command line users to completely
 configure and control only those features they want to use. The arrival of
 the 3.2 release sees full API access from the .NET environment which, with
 our native Java support, allows seamless integration within all major web
 and intranet environments.
     For the end user we have responded to the need for more readily
 deployable solutions with the inclusion of an installer and the launch of
 new graphic user interfaces (GUI's). libMCS quickly clusters large sets
 according to maximum common substructure, the libMCS GUI allows users to
 navigate and filter within an interactive dendogram and hierarchical tree
 viewer. The Reactor GUI makes ChemAxon's novel library enumeration
 technology more easily deployable by taking users through the steps and
 options available during synthetically feasible virtual library design. The
 Standardizer GUI helps users build custom business rules for structure
 canonicalization, beautification and structure conversion useful during
 compound registration and post processing.
     For core search new reaction searching functions include reaction
 similarity search by different reaction, reactant and product similarity
 measures as well as reacting centre bond query features for structural
 reaction searches. For chemical search, mixture, formulation and component
 brackets can now be used and many other refinements and options are added
 including flexible search options like 'vague bond' and tautomer searching.
