Feb 19, 2008, 00:00 ET from ChemAxon Ltd.

    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
 meaningful results.
