CWM Global Search allows scientists to solve chemical structure oriented scientific problems on the Internet by using federated searching over many excellent sources. Using only one interface, the user can retrieve information from many publicly available databases. These include, but are not limited to, databases about chemical suppliers, biological information, toxicity and safety data, and patents. At the time of this writing more than 70 sources can be searched, and the number is growing monthly. Since many scientists may not be familiar with the predefined profiles available for all these sources, CWM Global Search allows you to add your own. The use of the IUPAC supported InChIs (International Chemical Identifier) or InChIKeys as the unique molecular identifier allows structure searches in many sources that were until recently only searchable by text. We will discuss the many features of CWM Global Search in detail by providing examples. Download slides
