Accelrys to Showcase New Biotherapeutics Research Tools in Discovery Studio® at CHI's PepTalk 2010 Conference

January 11th Accelrys Presentation: Modeling the 3-Dimensional Structures of Antibody and Their Interaction Interface to Antigen

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - January 7, 2010) - Accelrys, Inc. (NASDAQ: ACCL), a leading provider of scientific business intelligence software and services, will participate in the CHI PepTalk 2010 Conference being held at the Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego, CA from January 11-15, 2010. Accelrys Protein Engineering and Antibody Modeling experts will showcase new features and enhancements found in Accelrys Discovery Studio 2.5.5 that both enable and improve the modeling of antibody structure and function. The advanced computational technology supported by the Discovery Studio environment allows scientists to explore the antibody landscape in silico prior to costly experimental implementation, thus greatly reducing the time and expense involved in bringing such products to market, while increasing scientific productivity. Accelrys will be exhibiting the latest release of Accelrys Discovery Studio in booth #32.

On Monday, January 11th at 3:35 pm, Dr. Shikha Varma-O'Brien of Accelrys will present "Modeling the 3-Dimensional Structures of Antibody and their Interaction Interface to Antigen." She will discuss and demonstrate how Accelrys Discovery Studio not only contains the tools necessary to construct modeling framework from antibodies, but also enables structure based prediction of antibodies by physical properties with the goal of uncovering novel antibody designs.
