Virtual Classrooms and E-Learning: Bringing Cheminformatics Training Into Academic and Industrial Settings
We have begun the second phase of our research program intended to create a virtual classroom for teaching cheminformatics. This web-based project integrates concept-teaching with real-world software applications. Several vendors, including ChemAxon are participating by providing software, which will be incorporated into the e-learning modules. I will describe the overall goals of the project and demonstrate our first preliminary module. This module demonstrates the use of MarvinEdit for structure input, fingerprinting and ChemTattoo® from Mesa Analytics & Computing, LLC, OEChem from OpenEye Scientific Software, Inc. and MarvinView for color-coded display of results.
