Since its public introduction in 2005 the IUPAC InChI chemical structure identifier standard has become the international, worldwide standard for defined chemical structures. This article will describe the extensive use and dissemination of the InChI and InChIKey structure representations by and for the world-wide chemistry community, the chemical(More)
When producing recombinant protein for therapy, it is desirable not only to obtain substantial amounts of the protein, but also to make sure that potential contaminants such as inducing agents are not present in the final product. To prevent this, one can use expression systems in which the promoter (lambdaP(L)) is activated by a temperature shift that(More)
From 1970 to 1984, the U.S. Government cooperated with various organizations in the support of the development, maintenance, and distribution of a computer-based chemical information system of spectral and other numeric databases, known as the NIH/EPA Chemical Information System (CIS). This presentation discusses the history of the project and related(More)
InChIKey is a 27-character compacted (hashed) version of InChI which is intended for Internet and database searching/indexing and is based on an SHA-256 hash of the InChI character string. The first block of InChIKey encodes molecular skeleton while the second block represents various kinds of isomerism (stereo, tautomeric, etc.). InChIKey is designed to be(More)
