 –  (2 years 6 months)Pune Area, India
SBW is a major provider of innovative and dynamic biotechnology solutions in drug discovery and development and related areas. The company's divisions are engaged in high-tech research and delivery solutions for global pharmaceutical and biotechnology clients

Project: Development of Data Mining Software for Chemo-informatics (Team: 4 members) The Data Mining software allows automated Molecular Mining for BioActivity, Toxicity and Side Effects Prediction and involves XML schema, XML queries, rule Inference and rule engines. It transforms the structural information for chemically, biologically or pharmacologically related molecules to a hierarchical schema of concepts and descriptors. It discovers patterns in the related schema and predicts biological activity, using rules inferred from analyzing the patterns.

Technologies used: J2SE programming including Swing with XQuery

Functionalities: Comprehensive search options for predicting Drug Therapeutic Area.
