CDD Vault Update: Averages and Normalization


Readout definitions: more flexible averaging You can now choose a different level of aggregation for each average readout, whereas previously the aggregation level was uniformly set for all readout definitions in the vault. The available aggregation levels are as follows: Batch/Run is good for replicate data in a single experiment (run). Replicated data from the…

CDD Vault Update: Preventing Duplicates

Smiles Chem Axon

This release makes it easier for you to avoid registering duplicate structures and includes a collection of other enhancements. Tautomeric structure detection When new structures are registered in the CDD Vault, they are compared to existing molecules. If equivalent structures are found by InChIKey, a suspicious “unintentional duplicates” event is reported. When this event is…

CDD Vault Update: New import and search capabilities

Update existing molecules

Update structureless molecules en masse (For vaults that use CDD’s molecular registration system) If you work in a vault with a registration system, you previously had to manually update each structureless molecule when the structure became available. That’s fine for the one-off compound, but a drag for a whole compound library. Now you can bulk…

CDD Vault Update: Batches can have files too

Batch details

The last two releases brought you files-as-readouts. Now you can treat files as a special type of batch field. What does this mean? It means that you can associate images and other files directly with your structures! NMR spectra, MSDS sheets, crystal structures, requisition forms; you get the idea. Vault administrators will need to define…

CDD Vault Update: Search from a List

This release allows you to search using a list of molecule keywords, without needing to provide any boolean operators. This means that you can copy-and-paste a list of molecule IDs, batch external IDs, or any other keywords directly from Excel, Word, Notepad or another application. As long as each term appears on a separate row,…
