Chemical reactions database updates to improve R&D information exchange

February 26, 2020 / Drug Target Review

The latest file format of the Unified Data Model (UDM) has been released by the Pistoria Alliance, a global, not-for-profit organisation. According to the alliance, this update delivers a stable foundation for the collection and exchange of chemical reaction data and empowers the R&D community to move forward with its adoption. The release is built upon standard (Allotrope-compatible) vocabularies for units of measure and analytical methods, allowing the systems to be interoperable. The alliance emphasises that as increased adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) in R&D continues, industry-wide data standards are essential in the move towards the digitally driven Lab of the Future (LoTF).
