KNIME node for CIR by Talete

Sorry, for being so quiet recently – but the preparation of new services at cactus kept us busy (we will write more about it soon).

Andrea Mauri of Talete pointed me to the KNIME node they have implemented and which is available for download at their web site, so if you work a lot with KNIME and need a lookup or conversion of different chemical structure representations, please take a look at their nice work (sorry, Andrea for delaying this post for so long).

Hurricane Sandy

Sorry for the inconvience,



Sat, Jan-08: Network Maintenance

The network infrastructure of the NIH campus where our lab is located will get an update on Sat, Jan-08, 2011. This will affect accessabilty of all of our web services at during Saturday. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause (and we hope you will return on Sunday 🙂 ).

Thanks to all of you for your interest,
