PROPHET is an NIH-sponsored biological-chemical information system that incorporates a variety of computer science techniques—time sharing, extensible languages, data management, interactive graphics, graph-matching, molecular model building and statistics—into a user-oriented, user-responsive information handling tool to implement and facilitate drug research. Sponsored by the Chemical/Biological Information Handling Program of the NIH, Division of Research Resources, PROPHET is being designed and developed by the Medical Computer Systems Group of Bolt Beranek and Newman, Inc., Cambridge, Massachusetts (software) in collaboration with First Data Corporation, Waltham, Massachusetts (hardware) and a user group of diversified computer experience and research goals.
