Hi all,

For those who could make it: Thank you for coming and contributing to our Markush forum in Budapest last week.
For those who couldn't: This message is to update about the progress of the ChemAxon and Thomson Reuters Markush project.

Please find attached the slide sets and questionnaire presented at the forum. Feel free to distribute them amongst your colleagues within your organization.

We would be very grateful to anyone filling the questionnaire. You can send it back to us on the following address:  scsepregi at chemaxon.com.  Your feedback is highly appreciated.

In case of any questions, feel free to use this forum or send your questions to us privately.

Our focus remains to enhance Markush search performance and scale up searching the full Thomson Reuters MMS database efficiently.

Other updates:
1. On the recent European User group meeting there were several presentations relating to our Markush project.
The slides can be downloaded on the following links, and videos will be added within a few weeks.

3. The Thomson Reuters evaluation datasets for pharmaceutical, agrochemical and general chemistry patents are now available in the new Instant JChem 5.5 project format.
Each contains about 300 patent records including cross-linked MMS Markush records, DWPI patent information and DCR specific chemical structures.
Please contact your ChemAxon or Thomson Reuters sales managers if you are interested in evaluating these example sets.

4. The next Markush forum will be held on 29 September, 2011 in San Diego; following our US UGM.
