  • Extracting more value from data silos

    • 245th American Chemical Society National Meeting & Exposition.
    • April 7, 2013

    In order to maximize the chances of finding novel crop protection molecules, that are safe for the environment, it is necessary to bring together biological and chemical information from both inside and outside of an organisation. The integrated use of biological data can help eliminate false positive molecular candidates and improve the chances of finding the correct candidates for development.

    Information about the Biological activity of compounds is captured in disparate systems within Syngenta and in the public domain. This presentation will show how highly curated bioactivity data from ChEMBL was linked to the Syngenta corporate chemical catalogue, along with other Syngenta research data and commercial patents indexes, using the Resource Description Framework (RDF).

    The resulting linked data was then used to support mode of action, spectrum and selectivity competency questions used in herbicide discovery. This is great example of using a semantic web approach to link biological activity data with cheminfomatics data to ease research.

    Data Domains covered: bioactivity, small molecule, chemical properties and chemotype
