Exposing Batch Owner and Date Fields Throughout CDD Vault

While we have always tracked the Owner, Creation Date, and Update Date data for your Batches of Molecules, we are now exposing these Batch fields within the interface. With this new exposure, these fields are:

  • available for searching,
  • displayed in the search results table when using “Customize Your Report", and
  • displayed in the Edit Batch panel.

The ELN 3D Viewer Now Supports Additional File Types

In addition to pdb files, the ELN 3D Viewer will now visualize additional file formats: including cif, mCIF, multimodel CIF, and mol2 files.

These files, when attached within an ELN entry, will automatically preview in an interactive 3D viewer.

As with any file, inserting these files can be achieved by dragging-and-dropping the file into your ELN entry workspace or by using the “Insert Attachment” paperclip button in the header bar of an ELN entry.
