and 'In-Silico' Drug Discovery"
THURSDAY, APRIL 25, 2002
By Mr. Jeff
President & Chief Operating Officer
Open to the Public. No fee. 5:00 - 7:00 p.m.
The Pub Talk begins at 6:00 p.m.
in drug discovery has shifted from data collection to data integration
and analysis. In fact, poor data integration is seen as a key factor
reducing R&D productivity. Trying to solve the life science
data integration problem using traditional IT approaches is like
trying to fit a square peg into a round hole -- it doesnt
work. At this Pub, come learn how geneticXchange's K1 System is
providing a revolutionary way to solve this problem, enabling rapid
access to - and integration of - complex, dispersed scientific data.
The business results are accelerated time to market, reduced risk,
and elimination of a long-standing barrier to the drug discovery
process for biotech and pharmaceutical companies.
