BAGIM is an active community of Boston area scientists bringing together people from diverse fields of modeling and informatics to impact life and health sciences. BAGIM strives to create a forum for great scientific discussions covering a wide range of topics including data management, visualization, computational chemistry, drug discovery, protein structure, molecular modeling, structure-based drug design, data mining, software tools, and the sharing of goals and experiences. Our community is made up of participants from academia, government, and industry whose goal is to engage in the discussion of science involving a synthesis of theory and technology. Discussions sponsored by BAGIM are targeted to the needs and interests of informatics scientists, computational chemists, medicinal chemists, and statisticians. BAGIM also provides opportunities for networking within these disciplines as well as an arena for the dissemination of information of specific interest to the membership.

BAGIM Event: ChEMBL Roadshow, December 5th at 1pm at Vertex

Dr. John Overington and Dr. George Papadatos of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory will present a series of topics, including an introduction to the ChEMBL bioactivity database, how it can be used in drug discovery, accessing it via SQL, KNIME, and local virtual machines, and SureChEMBL, which includes structural patent data.

The presentations will begin at 1pm on December 5th on the 9th floor of building 1 at the Vertex site in Boston (50 Northern Avenue), and will likely run 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Vertex is a short 12 minute walk from South Station via Atlantic and Northern Avenues, or take the Silver Line bus from South Station to Court House Station and cross Northern Avenue. Parking is available in the Pilgrim Parking Fan Pier parking garage beneath the building.

BAGIM is sponsored by OpenEye Scientific Software, Schrodinger, Chemical Computing Group, ARIAD Pharmaceuticals, Vertex Pharmaceuticals,and ChemAxon.
