CDD Vault Update (August 2020 [#2]): Search and Link Across Vaults, Run Metadata Available in Search Results Table, and Structure-Related Information Only Displays When Molecules are Present within CDD Vault
August 26, 2020
Author Mike Schmoker wrote “Things get done only if the data we gather can inform and inspire those in a position to make difference.” We strive to make CDD Vault a platform where your data is available to inform and inspire your colleagues and collaborators.
Change to Search and Link across Vaults
Currently, users who have the “Search across vaults” feature turned on are able to perform queries across multiple Vaults in the Explore Data tab.
- Users, please let your Vault Administrators know if you wish to use this cross-Vault linking feature within the CDD Vault ELN.
- Vault Administrators, please email CDD Support and request that this feature be activated for your CDD Vaults.
Display Protocol Run Fields within the CDD Vault Search Results Table
In CDD Vault your assay results are organized into Runs of data imported into Protocol definitions. When importing, users may populate Date, Lab, Person & Conditions fields for each Run.
- The Run date link in the Search Results Table now takes you directly to the Run Data Summary page.
- At least 1 data readout for the Protocol Run needs to be displayed in order to see the Run metadata fields within the Search Results Table.
Structure-Related Information & Search Features Will Only Display When Chemical Structures are Available
Many customers are using CDD Vault to manage data that is not related to small molecules. In an effort to keep the CDD Vault platform intuitive, we will only show chemistry features if a Vault contains chemical structures.
- When viewing a specific “molecule” record that does not contain a chemical structure, the Lipinski and Additional Properties sections are removed. The Batch Salt and Formula Weight fields are also hidden.
- Registering a single chemical structure into a CDD Vault will cause all of these chemistry-specific features to appear.
