Microsoft Office Add-ins for Scientists

Working with members of the research community and developers in the Microsoft Office Product group, we are developing a series of technologies for scientists—built on existing community protocols and practices—to advance semantic knowledge discovery.

Example Projects

Chemistry Add-in for Word 
Chemistry-related add-in for authoring and semantic annotation in Microsoft Office Word. This approach to chemistry authoring is modeled after the mathematic equation authoring in Word 2007 and takes advantage of the user-interface and XML extensibility options provided by Office 2007. In collaboration with Unilever Centre for Molecular Science Informatics, Cambridge University, UK.
