    Always up on Friday

    Because no one wants to get left out of a weekend deal, understandably so!

    There's a nice article by a guy named Austolib (The Israeli Libertarian) today on tech platforms. Here's what he said about Achillion:

    "What we can say about Achillion's platform is that it is certainly highly computerized. First, there is the Achillion Automated Chemistry Platform, software that automates some of the steps in synthesizing small molecules, basically the building blocks of any of these antivirals. From there is the Compound Acquisition and Repository Tracking, which streamlines and categorizes the building blocks into different chemical groups. Then data mining software takes these categorized building blocks and cross references them with known biological activity by category. With this information, Achillion can start piecing together the building blocks like a jigsaw puzzle. Then, the Competitive Intelligence and Data Mining system sifts through publicly available information about preclinical and clinical activities around the world and any that may overlap with the compounds Achillion pursues at this stage. Achillion's software continues to follow the development process step by step, including organizing preclinical results to spot candidates."
