NYT: Computer engineering incorporates principles of biology; Supercomputer simulates molecules key to drug responses;

> The Royal Society of Chemistry and the University of Cambridge have worked together to enable researchers to publish chemistry data on the ChemSpider compound database from their IDBS electronic laboratory notebook software (called E-WorkBook), enabling scientists to share information and cut down needlessly duplicating efforts. Release

> BioData released a research management tool called LabGuru, a web application designed to help academic labs to "plan experiments, track progress, share results and comments, manage inventories, and organize related documents, protocols and data," the Tel Aviv, Israel-based company reports. Item

> Relay Technology Management has tapped Attivio to aid in the development of the startup's Relay Innovation Engine, which enables life sciences groups to aggregate and evaluate scientific, clinical and business data. Attivio specializes in bundling search, business intelligence and process automation for products. Release

> Computer engineering is incorporating principles of biology after decades of using the computer-as-brain analogy. Article

> Researchers used a supercomputer at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory to simulate the movement of water molecules in a class of enzymes involved in processing drugs called P450s, mutations of which could explain why some people respond differently to the same medicines.
