Open Drug Discovery Presentation Session with JC Bradley

17 Oct

I had the pleasure of co-presenting with my friend Jean-Claude Bradley today at the “3rd Annual Drug Discovery Partnership: Filling the Pipeline“. Jean-Claude gave a great talk, available on Slideshare here, and discussed the issue of data quality, how improve data gives improved models, the cross-validation of data and proliferation of errors. My talk is on Slideshare here and embedded below. In many ways I discussed similar issues, though not focused on melting point data but rather on structures, structure-identifier relationships, the cross-linking of multiple resources on the internet and how online resources can support Open Drug Discovery Systems. In this presentation I discussed some of the work we are doing on Open PHACTS.

    Tony – your talk was a great addition to the panel. I’ll have my recording up after I get back from Washington this weekend.
