Advancing medical research… and the quality of your coffee

Supported by advanced R&E networks in Latin America (RedCLARA) and Europe (GÉANT), a Columbian-Swiss team of researchers has developed an application for open, free-of-charge online data management and analysis of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectra. Thanks to the Mylims platform, scientists around the world are able to process and manipulate data, interpret results and compare them with spectra obtained by other users and those stored in databases, thus accelerating the understanding of compounds. Mylims has already led to breakthroughs in the diagnosis of illnesses, such as leukaemia, and has become a valuable tool for food chemists to detect fraudulent coffee.
