Vortex to Accelerate Anti-infective Research at the Institute for Molecular Bioscience at the University of Queensland, Australia

BISHOPS STORTFORD, England, August 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Dotmatics data analysis and visualisation tool proven essential in Prof. Cooper's team's quest for finding new 'superbug' antibiotics  

Dotmatics, a leading provider of scientific informatics solutions and services, announced today that Prof. Cooper's renowned Medicinal Chemistry and Drug Development research group at the Institute for Molecular Bioscience, University of Queensland has deployed Vortex, Dotmatics' leading scientific intelligence and analytics solution, to assist with their innovative research in anti-infective therapies.

Infectious disease remains the second leading cause of death globally. The increase in multidrug-resistant (MDR) bacteria and the decline in effective therapies have resulted in 'the superbug crisis.' Research conducted by Prof. Cooper's team has led to the discovery of several drug candidates against anti-infective diseases. The team is also spearheading a global initiative, Worldwide Antibiotic Discovery Initiative for the discovery and development of new therapies against multidrug-resistant (MDR) microorganisms. This complex research encompasses the analysis of large amounts of biological and chemical data. Dotmatics' Vortex provides Prof. Cooper's team with an essential tool to perform complex data mining, analysis and visualisation, enabling the scientists to find unique trends and identify lead compounds in an effective way.

 "We have large data sets generated from our high-throughput antimicrobial screening facility and multiple collaborative development projects, as well as the integration of publicly available data. Statistical analysis and visualisation of the data thereby plays a crucial role in the decision making process of selecting and progressing drug candidates," said Prof. Cooper. "The Dotmatics Platform has an important role in the team as it assists the decision making process by providing a comprehensive and interactive visualisation tool to our medicinal chemists."

"We are very pleased to continue our expansion in Australia and proud to have been selected by Prof. Cooper's team to provide solutions to assist with his complex research of anti-infective drug candidates," said Dr Mike Hartshorn, CSO at Dotmatics. "We invest strongly in developing great informatics solutions for the scientific community and are thrilled to learn that world class researchers across all continents are using Vortex and the Dotmatics Platform to accelerate their studies."

Today's workforce is trading their cubicles and corporate desktops in favor of an any-location, any-device work style. And as digital natives make up more and more of the modern workforce, the appetite for user-friendly, cloud-based services grows. The center of work is shifting to the user and to the cloud. But managing a proliferation of SaaS, web, and mobile apps running on any number of clouds and devices is unwieldy and increases security risks. Steve Wilson, Citrix Vice President of Cloud,...
When Enterprises started adopting Hadoop-based Big Data environments over the last ten years, they were mainly on-premise deployments. Organizations would spin up and manage large Hadoop clusters, where they would funnel exabytes or petabytes of unstructured data.However, over the last few years the economics of maintaining this enormous infrastructure compared with the elastic scalability of viable cloud options has changed this equation. The growth of cloud storage, cloud-managed big data e...
Artificial intelligence, machine learning, neural networks. We're in the midst of a wave of excitement around AI such as hasn't been seen for a few decades. But those previous periods of inflated expectations led to troughs of disappointment. This time is (mostly) different. Applications of AI such as predictive analytics are already decreasing costs and improving reliability of industrial machinery. Pattern recognition can equal or exceed the ability of human experts in some domains. It's devel...
