VERDI - An Extensible Cheminformatics System
As part of an informatics infrastructure which unites chemical and biological information, we have created VERDI - The Vertex Research Database Interface. VERDI is a cheminformatics system which provides an intuitive, user-friendly means of retrieving and analyzing chemical and biological data. The software employs a multi-tier client-server architecture which dramatically simplifies the integration of multiple databases with in-house and third party analysis components. This presentation will provide an overview of the VERDI architecture as well as examples of its use in drug discovery projects.
