Press Release: ACD/Labs becomes an Associate Partner of the Open PHACTS project

(PDFThe Open PHACTS consortium is pleased to announce an Associate Partner relationship with Advanced Chemistry Development, Inc. (ACD/Labs) who will be supplying a number of predicted physicochemical properties for inclusion within the project data. ACD/Labs is one of the primary suppliers of prediction algorithms to the life sciences industry and their contribution of data provides enhanced querying options for the users. Daria Thorp, President of ACD/Labs, comments “The Open PHACTS project represents a promising approach that leverages existing pharmacological knowledge to make new discoveries. ACD/Labs, with our 18 years of in silico physicochemical and ADME-Tox modeling experience, is excited to provide our industry leading molecular property predictions notably logD at physiologically relevant pH, “rule of 5”, and logP values to this project.” The ACD/Labs data will be offered via RSC ChemSpider which provides the chemical compound data in a format consumable by the Open PHACTS platform.
