Session Description
Research Informatics at Elan has embarked upon the design and implementation of data and application integration platform - RISe. This platform seeks to integrate experimental chemistry and biology databases, computational tools, workflow systems, and knowledge management tools from various in-house and commercial sources. Using agile development methodology, and a blended resource model involving FTEs, contractors and offshore vendor resources, we have been able to rapidly develop a proof of concept & deploy it into production. These systems include biology registration, workflow and inventory management systems for plasmid, antibody and cell lines. We have also implemented a customized compound registration system and an innovative integration of chemistry and biology data. These scientific systems are augmented by a new collaborative environment for research, enriched with research analytics tools.
