RFP published: HELM Ambiguity and Web-services

The HELM (Hierarchical Editing Language for Macromolecules) 2.0 project has published an RFP that aims to implement a number of enhancements to the current HELM definition and open source codebase in order to:

  1. Enable the support of structural ambiguity (e.g. bioconjugates with ambiguous or unknown attachment point between drug and antibody).
  2. Re-architect the toolkit source code into a more modular, API-based structure that will facilitate more service-based applications and the removal of third party dependencies.

The RFP documentation is in three parts, all of which may be downloaded as PDF files via the links below:

  1. Pistoia Alliance Ambiguous HELM RFP
  2. Ambiguous HELM Requirements Specification
  3. Ambiguous HELM Line Notation Design

Confirmation of intent to participate must be received at the email address specified in clause 3.3.4 of the RFP by 10am GMT on Monday 10th August.

    Although equinix are not qualified to help with the actual science we have a growing Health IT ecosystem around the world with CRO’s Life Science and Health Information Exchanges growing within our datacentres worldwide.

    Some are connected to our Equinix Cloud Exchange (ECX) to push private workloads into multiple cloud environments securely, and others who also advertise as a private cloud in using the API.

    So we would like to help in offering our ECX to your partner(s) to connect using the API. Slides 4/5/6 go into more detail on how the API can be made available privately in a L2 VLAN environment, but also L3 and as an As A Service (aas) model.

    Some of your members are already in discussion with us on this theme and so the API part is a turnkey solution – not a 6 month development.

    Happy to discuss is this is useful to the Pistoia Alliance and its members.

    Best regards

    Tim
