The Chemistry Development Kit (CDK) is a freely available open-source Java library for Structural Chemo- and Bioinformatics. Its architecture and capabilities as well as the development as an open-source project by a team of international collaborators from academic and industrial institutions is described. The CDK provides methods for many common tasks in(More)
Compound identification and support for computer-assisted structure elucidation via a free community-built web database for organic structures and their NMR data is described. The new database NMRShiftDB is available on . As the first NMR database, NMRShiftDB allows not only open access to the database but also open and peer reviewed submission of datasets,(More)
There is a need for software applications that provide users with a complete and extensible toolkit for chemo- and bioinformatics accessible from a single workbench. Commercial packages are expensive and closed source, hence they do not allow end users to modify algorithms and add custom functionality. Existing open source projects are more focused on(More)
Contemporary biological research integrates neighboring scientific domains to answer complex questions in fields such as systems biology and drug discovery. This calls for tools that are intuitive to use, yet flexible to adapt to new tasks. Bioclipse is a free, open source workbench with advanced features for the life sciences. Version 2.0 constitutes a(More)
CMLSpect is an extension of Chemical Markup Language (CML) for managing spectral and other analytical data. It is designed to be flexible enough to contain a wide variety of spectral data. The paper describes the CMLElements used and gives practical examples for common types of spectra. In addition it demonstrates how different views of the data can be(More)
The process of designing and implementing NMRShiftDB, an open-source, open-content database for chemical structures and their NMR data based solely on free software is described. NMRShiftDB is available to the community on http://www.nmrshiftdb.org. It allows for open submission and retrieval of data sets by its user community. The software and the content(More)
Current efforts in Metabolomics, such as the Human Metabolome Project, collect structures of biological metabolites as well as data for their characterisation, such as spectra for identification of substances and measurements of their concentration. Still, only a fraction of existing metabolites and their spectral fingerprints are known. Computer-Assisted(More)
These are additional figures and tables related to our dataset. The additional file input.csv.gz includes the input data as comma separated matrix, which can be read by most spreadsheet applications or the R code data <read.csv("input.csv", row.names=1). The first row is the atomID as stored in NMRshiftDB, the remaining 246 columns are the descriptor values(More)
BACKGROUND The Chemistry Development Kit (CDK) is a widely used open source cheminformatics toolkit, providing data structures to represent chemical concepts along with methods to manipulate such structures and perform computations on them. The library implements a wide variety of cheminformatics algorithms ranging from chemical structure canonicalization(More)
We suggested and developed various components for Computer-Assisted Structure Elucidation (CASE) over the years [1,2]. Our current goal is to integrate these into an easy to use and efficient platform for end users, called SENECA. This is based on Bioclipse [3], an integrated software suite for chemoand bioinformatics providing plugins for file handling and(More)
