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.
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
Chemical Computing Group Inc. is a leading provider of computational
applications aimed at the drug discovery and design marketplace. CCG's
flagship product is the award winning Molecular Operating Environment, which
offers visualization, simulation, and methodology development in one package.
MOE provides an integrated suite of powerful, yet intuitive chemistry software
tools for HTS, Structure Based Design, Molecular modeling and Protein and
Homology modeling as well as an embedded programming language for the rapid
prototyping of scientific methods. Computational chemists, medicinal chemists
and biologists use MOE in pharmaceutical companies, biotechnology companies,
and universities worldwide.
CCG's headquarters are in Montreal, Canada, with offices in K?ln, Germany
and Cambridge, UK. For more information, visit www.chemcomp.com or send E-mail
