Building a Symbiotic Informatics Platform to Support Drug Discovery
Getting heterogeneous tools to “play nicely” in the Informatics sandbox
At GBT we have built an Informatics platform leveraging and integrating common, industry standard tools to provide a comprehensive solution to enable research operations. By providing a symbiotic framework for various heterogeneous tools, we have minimized licensing cost without sacrificing capability. The loose coupling of tools has enabled them to be used independently or within the Informatics platform framework to facilitate drug discovery workflows. This talk highlights some of the key systems and the different integration strategies utilized to enable the various tools to participate within the symbiotic ecosystem.
