Vault Snack; vȯlt snak; noun:

A fact, tip, or trick offered by the CDD Support Team to aid in your successful use of CDD Vault for managing, analyzing, and presenting chemical structures, biological assays, and ELN data.

Look-Up Functions Within the Marvin Structure Editor

We know users look up structures (from within and outside their Vault) and use those chemical structures as the basis of additional queries across their data.

Did you know that our Marvin Structure Editor will look up these structures for you and insert them into the structure editor?  

  • "Launch the Structure Editor" from the Explore Data > Search menu
  • Click on the blue "Insert structure" tool in the top menu bar  

Type in a Molecule ID, Synonym, Common Name, or CAS Number

Marvin will retrieve the structure of that chemical object right into the structure editor. (Yes, your eyes are not mistaken – you can type in a CAS Number and Marvin will retrieve the structure!)

You guessed it… there’s a special CDD Vault ELN bonus included with this look-up feature! The “Insert Compound or Reaction” button (found in the header of your ELN entries) will also look up these same Molecule IDs, Synonyms, Common Names, or CAS Numbers and insert these objects’ structures directly into your ELN entry.

Note: You might attempt to look up external items that cannot be rendered at this time. But rest assured, the repository of Common Names and CAS Numbers available for look-up will be expanded over time.

Be sure to contact CDD Support – we are always available to help you be more successful with CDD Vault!

Until next time!

Upcoming CDD Webinar
Better Science Through Metadata

Thursday, June 13, 2019 • 9:00 AM PT • 12:00 PM ET • 17:00 GMT

One of the most important assets in science is data, but how valuable is that data if we don't understand the metadata behind it? A point on a graph, a static image of a cell, or a readout from an instrument mean nothing without the experimental details that characterize them.

Today, accurate metadata capture is being recognized as a means to increase reproducibility and productivity across the scientific community. Initiatives like GO FAIR seek to make data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable and are increasing in popularity.

Metadata can greatly augment scientific data. In practice, we must ensure that metadata capture does not become a burden to the scientist.

Collaborative Drug Discovery set out to design a simple, quick, and efficient method of assay metadata management. We developed BioAssay Express (BAE) to do just that — our smart tool incorporates a hybrid machine-learning approach with expertly curated ontologies to unambiguously annotate your assay metadata with ease. It also provides a powerful engine for searching, comparing, and analyzing your assays. Assay Annotations have also been implemented into CDD Vault for Assay Registration.

Please join our expert panel of scientists, Dr. Ellen Berg (Eurofins and Alto Predict) and Dr. Isabella Feierberg (AstraZeneca) as they discuss the importance of metadata and their vision for how assay annotation will shape the future of drug discovery.

Click the button below to register now for this webinar coming up on Thursday, March 14th at 9:00 AM PT, noon ET, and 17:00 GMT.

Featuring These Leading Scientists...
Ellen L. BergChief Scientific Officer, Translational Biology for Eurofins Discovery

Ellen L. Berg, PhD is an entrepreneur and scientific leader in drug discovery technology innovation.

She is Chief Scientific Officer, Translational Biology for Eurofins Discovery and a principal at Alto Predict LLC. Dr.

Berg was the lead inventor of the BioMAP® platform of human primary cell-based disease models, now successfully commercialized by Eurofins and serving the pharmaceutical and consumer products industries to deliver safer and more effective products.

In previous positions, Dr. Berg was co-founder and CSO of BioSeek, Inc. and led a research team at Protein Design Labs, Inc.

She received her PhD from Northwestern University and was a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University, where she was a fellow of the American Cancer Society and a Special Fellow of the Leukemia Society of America.

She is currently focused on working with industry, academic, and government stakeholders to incorporate non-animal, human-based in vitro and in silico predictive models into the drug discovery process and helping to promote the adoption of these platforms by regulatory agencies.  

Dr. Berg holds several patents in the field of inflammation, and has authored over 80 publications.

Isabella FeierbergAssociate Principal Scientist, AstraZeneca

Isabella Feierberg, PhD has over 20 years of experience as a computational chemist in the early drug discovery field.

Her expertise in small molecule library design, HTS analysis, assay development, and assay informatics has led the way to a passion for FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable) data.

Isabella is currently working with the Pistoia Alliance to implement a crowd-sourced project that would curate public domain assay protocols with ontologies to provide high-quality metadata.

Dr. Feierberg received her MSc Eng and PhD from Uppsala University.

CDD Vault Celebrates 1 Millionth User Login with R2M Pharma
Dr. Tien Widjaja is the lucky, one-millionth user to login to CDD Vault.

When Dr. Tien Widjaja logged into CDD Vault for the first time in April 2018, she had no idea that she would score the lucky one millionth user login to the system just a year later.

“CDD Vault has been a valuable data management tool and it feels good to be part of this milestone,” says Tien, a Scientist in the medicinal chemistry group at R2M Pharma Inc (R2M).

Based in California, R2M’s mission is to accelerate drug discovery by taking drug candidates from early hit stage all the way to phase 1 clinical trial. The company prides itself in providing timely and cost-effective compound optimization service for its many external clients, in addition to having several internal projects. To do that, R2M needed a digital platform that could not only easily store and share data with external collaborators, but also protect the security of its own data. CDD Vault turned out to be the perfect solution.

“What I really like about the Vault,” says Julio Medina, PhD, CEO of R2M, “is that it enables us to share data in real-time with multiple partners, across diverse projects, while maintaining control of exactly who is able to access what information, which instills confidence in our partners.”

CDD Vault provides a centralized platform where R2M stores multiple types of data, including molecule registration, chemical and biological data, and experiment documentation using the ELN module. Not only does this safeguard against data loss, it’s also a time-saver when it comes to patent filing and sharing procedures, because everything is already captured electronically. In fact, some of R2M’s clients were so impressed with CDD Vault that they went on to obtain their own Vaults.

“CDD Vault has been hosting customer data for 15 years and the one-millionth login is a reflection of our super loyal customers,” according to Barry Bunin, PhD, CEO of Collaborative Drug Discovery. “We are proud to support the important research of forward-leaning scientists like Dr. Tien Widjaja at R2M.”

CDD Vault by Collaborative Drug Discovery is a simple and 100% secure data management platform that is hosted through an intuitive web interface.

Historically, spring was a hallmark season for new trails and new adventures. In the 1800s, American pioneers emigrated westward following the Oregon Trail. These pioneers embarked on their journeys during the Spring in order to reach Oregon before the winter snows made travel impossible.

Keeping with this tradition, CDD is announcing a trail of our own… the ELN Audit Trail!

ELN Audit Trail

The CDD Vault Electronic Lab Notebook includes an audit trail of users’ activities within their ELN entries. This provides a record of major events organized in reverse-chronological order, including the user, timestamp, and a description for each event.

To see the Audit Trail, select the “Audit Trail” button found in the header of your ELN entry.

Clicking this will display a side panel that lists the events that have occurred within your ELN entry since its creation. Audit trail events are recorded on a per-minute basis.

Identical activities that occur within 30 minutes of each other are summarized on a single row, with an option to reveal the details. You can export the entire audit trail to CSV at any time.
