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.
