Giant network links all known compounds and reactions to create chemical Google on steroids Northwestern University scientists have connected 250 years of organic chemical knowledge into one giant computer network -- a chemical Google on steroids. This "immortal chemist" will never retire and take away its knowledge but instead will continue to learn, grow and share. A decade in the making, the software optimizes syntheses of drug molecules and other important compounds, combines long...
