Drug Discovery Data Insights with Andrew Leach (ChEMBL), Evan Bolton (PubChem), and Ashley Farley (BMGF) on June 26

Highly Accessible SAR Data is Transforming the Drug Discovery Informatics Landscape.

SAR Webinar 500

Please join moderator Ashley Farley, Associate Officer of Knowledge & Research Services at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) for a discussion on drug discovery data with both Dr. Andrew Leach from ChEMBL and Dr. Evan Bolton from PubChem.  The webinar will be presented on June 26th at 8AM (PT) 11AM (ET) 15:00 (GMT).

The emergence of freely available PubChem and ChEMBL resources for chemical and biological Structure-Activity-Relationship (SAR) data has radically changed the global drug discovery informatics landscape. The heterogeneity of low throughput and high throughput chemical and biological data do nevertheless present some unique challenges – and opportunities – when creating large-scale community resources – for sophisticated purveyors of drug discovery data.
