Webinar: Accelerating Digital Drug Design With Automated Informatics Workflow 

Recorded live September 8, 2022

Modern drug discovery has become increasingly data-driven. Physics, machine learning, and omics-based approaches have all contributed to an explosion in data complexity which can pose significant challenges to scientists and project teams.

In this webinar, research leaders from Maze Therapeutics and Indiana Biosciences Research Institute (IBRI) discussed their best practices in managing and deriving insights from complex data by leveraging best-in-class informatics tools to create discovery workflows that span data capture and organization to compound design and analysis.

Speakers include...
