Now it’s time to manage your scientific data

Now it’s time to manage your scientific data

Data management is an essential part of responsible conduct of research. By using adequate tools for managing your data at the beginning of the project, you save time and effort later on. Also, you can be sure that the data you produce will be preserved in a clear and reuseable format. By managing your data […]

Data management services and analysis

Data management services and analysis

Bioinformatics is the computer-assisted data management discipline that helps in gathering, storing, and analyzing existing data in order to better understand processes in the healthy and disease states and speed up and enhance biological researches. Drugdesigntech offers a suite of services in order to facilitate such efforts.   Data integration Integrating data is imperative for […]

CRISPR will be a huge story in 2017

CRISPR will be a huge story in 2017

The gene-editing tool’s potential to upend science is dizzying. Updated by Eliza Barclay and Brad Plumer Jan 3, 2017, 8:50am EST – From VOX –   We’re about to enter a golden age of genetic engineering, where huge advances in gene-editing technology are making it possible for scientists to tweak the DNA of different organisms […]

Imprecise research threatens precision medicine

Imprecise research threatens precision medicine

By Spencer Phillips Hey and Aaron S. Kesselheim August 11, 2016 – From STAT – Reporting from the frontiers of health and medicine The right treatment for the right patient at the right time. That’s the mantra of what’s being called precision medicine. To date, though, imprecision medicine might be a better moniker. Precision medicine […]

Biomarkers analysis and gene expression

Biomarkers analysis and gene expression

For a decade we’ve been talking about the potential of molecular biology to increase our understanding of disease mechanisms. Biomarkers research supports a multitude of clinical approaches like molecular diagnostics, micro-array technologies, protein expression quantification and thus, can include all diagnostic ‘-omics’ layers, or any other objective phenotypic measures of a person’s health status. Drugdesigntech […]

What is open science?

What is open science?

Extract from Living in an Ivory Basement by Titus Brown –October 24, 2016 Some background: Science advances because we share ideas and methods Scientific progress relies on the sharing of both scientific ideas and scientific methodology – “If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of Giants” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Standing_on_the_shoulders_of_giants). The natural sciences […]

How overcome the challenge of drug repositioning?

How overcome the challenge of drug repositioning?

Drug Repurposing (DRPx), also commonly referred to as Drug Repositioning or Drug Rescue, emerged primarily in the early 1990s as an alternative to conventional de novo DDD. DRPx is defined more specifically as the process of finding new indications for approved drugs, abandoned or shelved compounds and candidates under development. DRPx is a complex process […]

Spreadsheets vs databases: The right tool for the right job

Spreadsheets vs databases: The right tool for the right job

Having consistent, reliable, and cross-linked data is one of the biggest challenges facing pharmaceutical RD. Although some data needs to be structured and aggregated, other data or documents need only to be indexed or stored. When do you use a spreadsheet, or when do you need a database? Both application types are useful but they […]

Biocorpora: a collaborative tool to leverage internal cooperation

Biocorpora: a collaborative tool to leverage internal cooperation

When we talk about collaboration or knowledge sharing, we often refer to external collaboration. The fact is that there are two types of collaboration: internal and external. The goal with both types of collaboration is very similar: get people to work together in a way that provides tangible benefits to common projects, while facilitating achievement […]
