This website was created as a platform to publish advanced Chem-Bio-Med-Informatics tools. Nowadays, Chem-Bio-Med-Informatics has become an independent discipline by itself. MoBiosD-hub provides innovative software (and other resources) to the chemical, medical, biological, biotechnological and pharmaceutical industry/academia for molecular modeling, drug (molecular) design and Chem-Bio-Med-based research as well as delivering informatics infrastructure for life science investigations.
The MoBiosD-hub initiative launched by the Unit of Computer-Aided Molecular “Biosilico” Discovery and Bioinformatic Research (CAMD-BIR Unit) dates back in 2006 and has had as a fundamental mission to provide novel tools, methods, theories and databases for the academy/industry. The CAMD-BIR Unit founded by Prof.
Advancements in the MoBiosD network need joint efforts of scientists from different academic backgrounds. This fact is evocative of the phrase stated by Freeman Dyson that, “some scientists are birds, others are frogs” (Notices Amer. Math. Soc., 2009, 56 (2), 212-223). “Birds fly high in the air and survey broad vistas of mathematics out to the far horizon”. Birds are delighted “in concepts that unify our thinking and bring together diverse problems from different parts of the landscape”. Otherwise, “Frogs live in the mud below and see only the flowers that grow nearby”. Frogs are delighted “in the details of particular objects, and they solve problems one at a time (…).” Finally, he said “Mathematics needs both birds and frogs. Mathematics is rich and beautiful because birds give it broad visions and frogs give it intricate details”. Similar behavior typifies Chem-Bio-Med-Informatics research, as it continuously requires a concerted effort through collaborations with many research groups/labs with excellent communication and adequate interpersonal skills in order to build Chem-Bio-Med-Informatics infrastructure in the world of molecular science and to keep up with current advances in this integral and multidisciplinary field.
