Bioinfomatics (commercial)

Chemical information systems

Chemical Information Systems and Molecular Databases are essential tools for many researchers working on the discovery and characterization of new organic and inorganic compounds, using them both to access information about known compounds and to store and manage information about their discoveries. Chemical and pharmaceutical companies will often have databases of many Gigabytes, with hundreds or even thousands of users querying them on a daily basis, so high capacity, high performance data storage is essential. Most Chemical Information Systems are based on a database engine from Oracle, populated with proprietary data appropriate to the application area.

Clinical trials

  • eClinical Platform - (Collection and distribution of clinical trial data) etrials
  • Oracle Clinical [LS] -(Pharmaceutical clinical trials solution) Oracle
  • S-PLUS® [LS] -(Solution for exploratory data analysis and statistical data mining) Insightful Corporation
  • S+SeqTrial [LS] -(An S-PLUS software library for designing, monitoring, and analyzing clinical trials using group sequential methods)

Computational chemistry & molecular modeling

Genetic sequencing

Genetic sequencing identifies the exact DNA sequence in a region of a chromosome or a whole chromosome. Applications on HP's platforms include:

Molecular graphics

Physical mapping & linkage analysis

Physical mapping creates, places, and locates markers on chromosomes to act as "landmarks". Linkage analysis identifies markers and locations along the chromosome that, through pedigree studies in large families, can be linked to target (typically disease) genes. Applications on HP's platforms include: 

Software libraries & services

X-ray crystallography

Other applications

Finally, a few applications that don't fit neatly into any of these categories:
