CCG Releases MOE Suite on Mac OS X Platform

MONTREAL March 29, 2004

Chemical Computing Group (CCG) announced plans to release the Molecular Operating Environment (MOE) for Apple's Mac OS X operating system. The product is expected to be commercially available by April 2004. This new version will also allow researchers to take full advantage of the stability and speed of Mac OS X's underlying UNIX layer as well as its advanced graphical capabilities.

CCG has undertaken this development in response to the growing demand for life science software on Mac OS X. MOE for Mac OS X offers drug-discovery scientists a comprehensive and integrated solution for drug discovery and design with the complete advanced feature set MOE is recognized for on other platforms. Now scientists can access and share their in-house data across all platforms and operating systems in a collaborative manner.

About MOE
The Molecular Operating Environment (MOE) is a comprehensive system that integrates visualization, molecular modeling, protein modeling, cheminformatics and bioinformatics in one package. In addition to the suite of graphical applications, MOE contains a toolbox for adapting existing applications or creating new applications for Life Sciences. With MOE, expert modelers, application developers and occasional users can benefit from sharing the same software system. Calculations and research are executed quickly with MOE's Scalable Multi Processing (SMP) system. MOE/smp provides researchers with the ability to run MOE's applications on collections of computer processors running a variety of operating systems including Mac OS X v.10.3 (Panther) or later. This integrated environment is ideal for use by experts and occasional users alike.
