BUDAPEST, Hungary, February 19 /PRNewswire/ -- ChemAxon, a software
solutions provider for cheminformatics today announced the launch of
version 5 of their cheminformatics toolkits, Marvin & JChem. The release
sees major improvement in Marvin user friendliness, Markush enumeration and
core development in JChem search, clustering and Oracle Cartridge
Marvin & JChem is a suite of application programming interfaces (API's)
and graphic user interfaces (GUI's) used by life science informatics
architects and developers to build chemically aware, platform independent
and web ready enterprise informatics systems. The functions of Marvin
include structure and reaction editing, visualization and structure based
property prediction and the functions of JChem include structure management
and search, library enumeration and library profiling.
The Marvin 5 toolkit sees a completely re-factored GUI with more
professional layout, ChemDraw & ISISDraw-like configuration options,
structure drag and drop support and OLE support to improve integration with
Microsoft Office applications. Structure based predictions are extended
with the addition of Markush enumeration.
JChem is improved with support for new table types for storing query
structures and Markush libraries, the Oracle Cartridge toolkit has improved
installation and major performance improvements. The maximum common
substructure toolkit, libMCS, now handles much larger input sets (100,000+)
more quickly and has increased chemical awareness to give more chemically
