An interactive computer system has been designed to handle all the data associated with the National Cancer Institute's (NCI) drug screening program. The system resides on the NIH DEC System 10 computers and allows interactive access to the entire NCI screening data system. This contains over 20 separate databases, including a chemistry file of about(More)
The Inventory/Shipping package of the NCI Drug Information System (DIS) is designed to support all inventory and shipping operations associated with the testing by the NCI of large numbers of chemicals for anticancer activity. Two major databases, an Inventory database and a Shipping History database, contain all of the data associated with these(More)
The Pre-Registry Module of the Drug Information System (DIS) is a staging area through which all new compounds are passed prior to acquisition and testing. Several methods are available for the entry of structures into the Pre-Registry; all involve built-in data validation. Newly entered structures are examined by computer programs for structural novelty(More)
The Chemistry Module of the Drug Information System (DIS) handles a database of 400,000 structures. New or modified records are created in this database on a daily basis and are merged into the file promptly. The Chemistry database is searchable in a wide variety of ways and provides novel methods for both input and output of chemical structures.
The NCI Drug Information System (DIS) is a collection of 24 interactively searchable databases which contain all the data associated with NCI's drug screening program. Data flow into all of these databases upon a daily basis, and maintenance procedures have been developed which provide a high degree of currency to the files. An extensive security system(More)
The NCI drug screening program tests over 10,000 chemicals per year for activity against cancer. The associated Drug Information System (DIS) captures all the raw testing data and provides for its validation. The large quantity of numeric data gathered during testing is maintained within the DIS in a database that is interactively searchable and(More)
The recent world record PHOLD performance result suggests optimistic parallel discrete event simulators (OPDES) should be able to deliver superior performance at extreme scale in many application domains. In fact, programming for OPDES today is extremely hard because of the necessity to write reversing and commit methods, in addition to the normal forward(More)
The One Health concept is a worldwide strategy for expanding interdisciplinary collaborations and communications in all aspects of health care for humans, animals and the environment. It is aimed at forging collaborations across medical, veterinary, environmental disciplines to achieve these goals with good biosafety as a common nexus in these disciplines.(More)
