Life sciences software provider ChemAxon has revealed that it is to boost the availability and quality of publicly accessible online chemical research resources with the launch of its FreeWeb package.
The FreeWeb package will provide ChemAxon’s chemical editing, viewing, search, property calculation and database management toolkits at no cost to freely accessible web resources being operated for non-commercial purposes. Unlimited licenses, upgrades and support will also be provided.
Following from the success of ChemAxon’s Academic Package, which gives all products free for academic teaching and research, the FreeWeb package aims to increase the quality and capabilities of publicly accessible online chemical research resources.
Toolkits included within the package include the Marvin Java applet family for creating chemical queries, viewing results and ligand/macromolecular analysis; JChem Base and JChem Cartridge to allow chemical searching and database management; Standardiser allowing business rules for structure management and Calculator Plugins to provide a range of structure based properties interesting to researchers for content held by the provider.
Ferenc Csizmadia, CEO of ChemAxon said, There is an increasing amount of chemically relevant content being made available publicly, online. The FreeWeb package is our contribution toward making that content more available and useful.
