The Project

MolPress is an open source WordPress plugin that allows raw chemical data objects (molecules, collections and reactions) to be embedded within any WordPress blog or content management system, allowing it to be used as a form of electronic lab notebook for chemists. The project is distinct from other ways of mixing descriptive text & chemistry diagrams in that it stores the chemistry objects in their native machine-readable data formats, and uses a web-based toolkit to render them for display in real time. This means that you get to make beautiful notebook entries that are immediately legible to other scientists and store the real data in the same place, where everyone can access it, and use it for their informatics systems. This principle is the foundational idea of data publishing. Read more
