Why KNIME for Life Sciences

Work with your specific life science data types easily and in one single environment.

Manage large amounts of data all in one place. 

Take advantage of machine learning capabilities in KNIME.

Use life science community nodes such as RDKit, Vernalis, SeqAn, and more.

Draw on expertise from the KNIME Team as well as the community via the KNIME Forum.

Life Sciences on the KNIME Blog

Scale and orchestrate the modeling process to train and evaluate 300,000 models or bioactivity prediction.

Explore, analyze, visualize: create interactive views using sunburst charts, tag clouds, and networks based on the example of investigating disease-related genes.

Learn how to use Python code found in Jupyter notebooks in KNIME as well as how to execute KNIME workflows directly from within Python.

Answer questions from the area of pharmaceutical research by linking and querying different datasets stored in BigQuery.

Workflow Snippets: 3D View of PDB Structures

Good things come to those who wait! Of course, with “good things” we mean finally being able to explore molecules in 3D with KNIME. Have a look at this workflow snippet demonstrating how to query the Protein Data Bank (PDB) and visualising the results in 3D using the 3D Molecule Viewer component. This was definitely worth the wait!
