Welcome to the Cheminformatics 2.0 blog. The name is an obvious riff on the “web 2.0” moniker: the subject relates to the design and use of chemical information software on such new-fashioned platforms as mobile devices and feature-rich client-heavy web pages, as well as other related modern paradigms such as cloud-computing and distributed storage of data and computational capacity.
Blogs that will be appearing under this label will have a much lower density of trendy buzzwords than the preceding paragraph. Rather the articles will be oriented toward describing recent progress toward building new products, or finding new uses for them. The theme is extension of chemistry software to areas that go beyond the traditional domain of workstation class computers.
