One of the key challenges in drug discovery is ensuring that project leaders and decision makers have access to the latest and most relevant data for their projects. While database architects can skillfully develop systems to search large volumes of complex data at high speed, end users typically don’t have the necessary technical knowledge to set up queries and easily extract relevant results. In this paper, we will describe the development of a graphical tool for user-friendly creation, sharing and execution of structured database queries. This is seamlessly linked with a comprehensive software environment, in which the resulting data can be used to guide effective decisions in the selection and design of high quality compounds for drug discovery and other chemistry fields.
