Bishops Stortford, United Kingdom, October 2nd 2012, Dotmatics Limited, a leading provider of informatics services to the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, today announced they have released the latest version of Vortex, their premium data analysis and visualization tool, designed for scientists working in the areas of Chemistry, Biology and Engineering.
Vortex provides researchers with the ability to load datasets with millions of data points, create high quality graphs and produce visualizations ready for presentation or publication. In addition, Vortex can consume data from Browser, Dotmatics’ flexible data query and federation platform.
The new release of Vortex integrates OpenAstexViewer™ and will enable scientists to directly visualize chemical structures and ligand complexes in 3D and 2D. Researchers can now explore their data using surface and contour plotting techniques. In addition, a new function for data aggregation has proved invaluable in spotting plate irregularities in screening campaigns. Vortex’s comprehensive and easy to use set of plots and calculations can be augmented via Python scripting. A new internal webserver allows many external applications (such as MOE™ or PyMol™) to interact directly with Vortex.
Many scientific organizations across the world are successfully using Vortex. “We are delighted to see the extensive and diverse usage of Vortex by scientists. Vortex has become the visualization and analysis tool of choice across a wide spectrum of scientific organisations from The Institute of Cancer Research UK to FujiFilm” said Dr Mike Hartshorn, Dotmatics CSO and creator of Vortex. “It has been very exciting to see the novel ways that scientists use Vortex in conjunction with their databases or as a standalone software tool.”
