Open PHACTS has released a collection of Pipeline Pilot and KNIME workflow components which integrate with the Open PHACTS API. Integration with these well-established graphical workflow tools allows the pharmacological and physicochemical data within the Open PHACTS Discovery Platform to be easily accessed and consumed.
Open PHACTS (Open PHArmacological Concepts Triple Store) is a project of the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI) and has seen SMEs, academia and the pharmaceutical industry work together to create a freely-available online platform to multiple, integrated sources of publicly available pharmacological data. The project ends in 2014 and the project’s not-for-profit successor organisation, the Open PHACTS Foundation, will continue to support and develop the infrastructure created.
The Open PHACTS Discovery Platform has been designed to answer various critical pharmacology questions, many of which can be addressed using the newly released Pipeline Pilot and KNIME nodes. The portal to the workflow integration collection can be found at dev.openphacts.org/workflow.
