More than chemistry: biosequence searching in CAS SciFinderⁿ

SciFindern Webinar

Recent enhancements make CAS SciFindern the most complete source of content for biosequence searching available today - and a must have in every molecular biologist’s solution toolbox. See how we’ve combined the biosequences information from patents and journals in the CAS Content Collection™ with submitted sequences in NCBI, giving you access to more than one billion sequence data points to explore using BLAST, CDR or Motif search algorithms. 

 

 

What you will learn

  • How to use the BLAST, CDR, and Motif search options to explore biosequence content 
  • Linking sequence content to the respective patent and journal references, along with links to the NCBI database

Searching the Derwent enhanced polymer indexing system on CAS STNext

Polymers are described in different ways in patents – from structure drawings, to specific polymer names, starting materials, etc. Derwent has created a system for search and retrieval of polymer information in patents. This e-Seminar will discuss the Derwent enhanced polymer indexing system, and will include examples of polymer searches in the Derwent World Patents Index database.
