Mobile apps bring powerful chemical data handling software to devices that everyone carries around with them, and in ways much easier and much cheaper to use. This 30-minute webinar is relevant for any chemist or life scientist who works with small molecules and wants to leverage the interactivity of mobile devices.

Webinar: Practical cheminformatics workflows with mobile apps

In recent years smartphones and tablets have attained sufficient power and sophistication to replace conventional desktop and laptop computers for many tasks. Chemistry software is late to the party, but rapidly catching up. This webinar will explore some of the cheminformatics functionality that can currently be performed using mobile apps. A number of workflow scenarios will be discussed, such as: creating and maintaining chemical data (molecules, reactions, numbers & text); searching chemical databases and utilising the results; structure-aware lab notebooks; visualisation and structure-activity analysis; property calculation using remote webservices; and a multitude of ways to share data collaboratively, and integrate modular apps within distributed and heterogeneous workflows.

Alex M. Clark graduated from the University of Auckland, New Zealand, with a Ph.D. in synthetic organometallic chemistry, then went on to work in computational chemistry. His chemistry background spans both the lab bench and development of software for a broad variety of 2D and 3D computer aided molecular design algorithms and user interfaces. He is the founder of Molecular Materials Informatics, Inc., which is dedicated to producing next-generation cheminformatics software for emerging platforms such as mobile devices and cloud computing environments.
