Searching and analyzing biological data and patented sequences using BONDplustop of page

Tuesday, February 12, 2008
9:00 AM

Colin Williams, Product Manager Biology & Bioinformatics

This session will provide an introduction to BONDplus, which was released by Thomson Scientific in August 2007, and which links patented sequences in GENESEQ, public domain sequences and biomolecular interactions. We will demonstrate how BONDplus can be used by biologists, intellectual property professionals and bioinformaticians, all of whom may have different needs. Also presented will be future plans for addition of content and applications and an opportunity to comment on the relevancy of these plans to you.

Searching at the interface of small molecules and biological moleculestop of page

Tuesday, February 12, 2008
9:55 AM

Donald Walter, Training Executive

Some indexing tools are built to describe small molecules, some are built to describe macromolecules, and some are built to describe biological molecules. If only the searches we are asked to conduct were so neatly classified! This talk will focus on some techniques for handling searches involving both small molecules (e.g. drugs) and biological molecules (e.g. receptors).

Thomson Innovation: An Introductiontop of page

Tuesday, February 12, 2008
11:05 AM

Mark Markley, Product Specialist

This session will focus on the new Thomson Innovation Intellectual Property tool. Thomson Innovation will contain both first level patent information, including information from some surprising sources, and the value add of the Derwent World Patent Index database. It will also contain references from the technical literature and business information, all in one place. The session will focus on the current state of the platform, as well as address improvements over current Thomson offerings, including PatentWeb and Delphion. Searching, display and exporting features will be discussed, as will the future direction of the product.

There is no charge for attending, but on-line registration is required. For more information, contact:
