We are very pleased to announce that BioExcel has recently formed a strategic partnership with the Open PHACTS Foundation.

The foundation provides the Open PHACTS Discovery Platform, which has matured since 2011 into an  important source of publicly available pharmacological linked data in a single integrated and open infrastructure. Open PHACTS supports data standards, interoperability and public understanding of drug discovery science. It is part of a large community of researchers and developers from industry, academia and small businesses. BioExcel works on a specific use case, which harnesses the Open PHACTS platform as a source of pharmacological data.

Both organisations are working together to extend joint activities in the areas of 1) Access to linked pharmacological data sets 2) Virtual screening workflows and the application of 3) Molecular Dynamic modelling predictions.

We look forward to developing the relationship as a collaborative partnership in the near future.
