Abstract:

Described is a system of computer programs that builds, checks, maintains, and retrieves from a chemical-biological data base on compounds that have been tested for herbicidal activity. The system started with a CDC 3150 computer in 1970, and is now implemented on a CDC 3300 computer. The data base now has over 30,000 records of biological activities and chemical structure descriptions. The computerized storage and retrieval system is capable of seraching, summarizing, and analyzing information on the effects of chemicals on vegetation.
