eScience for cheminformatics and drug discovery

Open Drug Discovery in Malaria Research

Presenters and Authors
  • Jean-Claude Bradley
  • Rajarshi Guha
  • Philip Rosenthal
  • Khalid Mirza
  • Jiri Gut

This talk will describe the practice of Open Notebook Science, a form of Open Science where a laboratory's experiments are made immediately publicly available. The UsefulChem project, involving the synthesis and testing of novel anti-malarial agents, will be highlighted as an example of ONS. The use of blogs, wikis, mailing lists, GoogleDocs, Second Life and other social software will be detailed. The application of cheminformatics tools to store and retrieve information will be demonstrated as a means of moving towards automation of the scientific process in novel ways. Such an open architecture is conducive to productive collaboration between groups of complementary competency. For example, the design, synthesis and testing of novel anti-malarial agents, bringing together groups from Indiana University, Drexel University and UCSF, will be detailed.
