BioOffice Ultra is the ultimate suite for management, analysis, and
visualization of biological data. Combining the superior drawing and database
capabilities of BioDraw Ultra, Bio3D Ultra and ChemINDEX with the documentation
and management capabilities of E-Notebook Ultra and Inventory Pro, BioOffice is
the suite for biological computing.
BioDraw Ultra provides a drawing tool for biological pathways. It includes
common pathway elements (membranes, DNA, enzymes, receptors, etc.) which are
built in as well as the ability to import other elements. One of the advantages
of BioDraw over alternative pathways drawing tools is the integrated power of
ChemDraw's chemical intelligence. BioDraw also includes a new pallet of flexible
arrow tools. You can now completely customize arrows and arrowheads for use in
complex biological pathways drawings. BioDraw pathways can be easily imported
for use in presentations and publications.
Bio3D provides affordable building, visualization, and computation tools on
the desktop. Bio3D can be used to display many types of molecular surfaces and
molecular orbitals. For macromolecules, Bio3D can render cartoon depictions of
proteins and nucleic acids making it possible to carry out state-of-the-art
protein visualization on the desktop. The Bio3D Model Explorer allows users to
fine tune the display characteristics of each building block of a protein or
small molecule. These visualization capabilities have been extended to include
the ability to automatically display hydrogen bonds in 3D as well as group
labels for groups such as amino acid residues in the 3D view. In the new
version, you can also generate and display partial surfaces for protein active
E-Notebook Ultra is a configurable, structure searchable electronic lab
journal. It is the efficient, accurate way to write lab notebooks entries as you
work. It stores Microsoft Office documents, BioDraw and ChemDraw structures and
reaction drawings, and related data in an electronic notebook you can search by
text or chemical structure. One can organize pages by project, experiment, or in
your own style.
Inventory Ultra is an inventory management tool that can be used to track
biological, chemical and non-chemical inventory supplies. Using MSDE as the
desktop database, users are given the opportunity to organize, store and search
over the inventory from the desktop.
The ChemINDEX Ultra database gives the user the ability to quickly look up
data such as chemical properties, biological assay results and toxicological
information. ChemINDEX is a directory of over 75,000 unique chemical substances,
listing chemical structure, 3D structure, registry numbers, synonyms, physical
properties, and links to Internet sources of further information.
