Digital Science & SciBite Join Forces to Harness Big Data for Life Sciences

LONDON, March 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Partners to combine text mining and data integration offerings to improve scientific research online

Digital Science, a technology company that provides software tools designed for scientists by scientists and SciBite, a scientific news and alerts service for human health and drug discovery, have signed a two-year collaboration agreement to work together on improving online research for the life sciences.

The agreement gives them access to each other's content and text mining technologies and will provide a connected approach to scientific research, starting with drug discovery and then expanding to other areas of the life sciences.

Initially, the two companies will offer their biological and chemical direct data products side-by-side to provide answers to questions like "What are the hottest new targets in a particular disease? Who is working on them and what small molecules have been disclosed in the literature, patents and beyond?" The new partners will also explore ways to integrate the biology and data integration technologies and content of SciBite with that of Digital Science's SureChem suite of patent chemistry products. This will create powerful new solutions and enhance existing offerings from across the Digital Science portfolio.

Timo Hannay , Managing Director of Digital Science said, "There is enormous potential in this partnership - we have the opportunity to correlate information from both chemical and biological data sources to speed up scientific research. This supports our goal of developing products that focus on the intersection of chemistry and biology. The social media aspect of SciBite, providing views of the top articles being read by scientific peers, also complements other Digital Science products and services."

Lee Harland , founder of SciBite said, "SciBite was founded to open up biomedical intelligence to a wider audience. By partnering with Digital Science we now have a way to connect the unique coverage of chemistry within SureChem to this rich biomedical data, and provide customers with a truly unique view of drug discovery and other life science research areas."
