An efficient drug discovery process requires multiple disciplines to coordinate their efforts in a systematic and coherent manner. Often this goal is obstructed by the lack of inter-departmental communication and inter-departmental awareness of resource allocation. Even in a small company environment, much effort can be wasted through poorly coordinated actions and unexpected events. This presentation will describe TraX, an integrated resource planning and workflow tracking environment developed to support ArQule's drug discovery efforts. This system enables all of our researchers to be aware of all work going on within our drug discovery efforts and to anticipate the workload coming their way.
