ChemAxon launches Marvin and JChem version 5; better user experience, better integration, more flexibility and higher performance.
Budapest, Hungary, Feb 19, 2008 -- ChemAxon, a software solutions provider for cheminformatics today announced the launch of version 5 of their cheminformatics toolkits, Marvin & JChem. The release sees major improvement in Marvin user friendliness, Markush enumeration and core development in JChem search, clustering and Oracle Cartridge performance. Marvin & JChem is a suite of application programming interfaces (API’s) and graphic user interfaces (GUI’s) used by life science informatics architects and developers to build chemically aware, platform independent and web ready enterprise informatics systems. The functions of Marvin include structure and reaction editing, visualization and structure based property prediction and the functions of JChem include structure management and search, library enumeration and library profiling. The Marvin 5 toolkit sees a completely re-factored GUI with more professional layout, ChemDraw & ISISDraw-like configuration options, structure drag and drop support and OLE support to improve integration withMicrosoft Office applications. Structure based predictions are extended with the addition of Markush enumeration. JChem is improved with support for new table types for storing query structures and Markush libraries, the Oracle Cartridge toolkit has improved installation and major performance improvements. The maximum common substructure toolkit, libMCS, now handles much larger input sets (100,000+) more quickly and has increased chemical awareness to give more chemically meaningful results.
