The January 2016 edition of the Pistoia Alliance newsletter, Innovation in Action, is available to download as a PDF document.
The Pistoia Alliance welcomed a host of new members at the start of 2016, further enhancing its position as a global, not-for-profit alliance of life science organizations that work together to lower barriers to innovation in R&D.
The HELM (Hierarchical Editing Language for Macromolecules) 2.0 project has today published an RFI requesting estimates for the creation of a web-based editor.
The Pistoia Alliance HELM project has made two major announcements that help cement the reputation of HELM as the de-facto standard for describing and working with complex macromolecular structures. Firstly, HELM users can now take advantage of free MarvinBeans 5.0 licenses for the HELM toolkit. Secondly, RDKit is now HELM-enabled, making it a valuable addition to the extensive range of open source HELM-enabled tools.
Lowering Barriers to R&D Innovation
We are a global, not-for-profit alliance of life science companies, vendors, publishers, and academic groups that work together to lower barriers to innovation in R&D.
Our projects transform R&D innovation through pre-competitive collaboration. We bring together the key constituents to identify the root causes that lead to R&D inefficiencies. We develop best practices and technology pilots to overcome common obstacles.
Our members collaborate as equals on open projects that generate significant value for the worldwide life sciences community.
With the launch of our Interactive Project Portfolio Platform (IP3) we are embracing a new level of openness, access, and transparency around our idea-to-project process. The platform is open to the public to submit new ideas, comment and vote on proposed ideas, and monitor the progress of our projects.
We are pleased to announce the keynote speakers and panelists for our European Conference to be held in London on March 28th 2017.
The Pistoia Alliance has appointed an advisory board to guide its strategy and provide insight and expertise from across the industry.
