ChemBioDraw Ultra is a chemical and biological drawing suite featuring advanced prediction tools and web integration.
For the past several years, Cornell's site license for ChemBioDraw had been administered by the Department of Chemistry through generous subsidies by that department and the Weill Cornell College of Medicine. This subsidy greatly reduced the license fee charged to registered users.
Beginning with the 2011-12 license period, these departments were no longer able to subsidize the cost of the license, and the CU Software group has assumed responsibility for license administration. The per-user license fee now reflects the true cost of the license.
In order to keep the license fees as low as possible, we now offer the ChemBioDraw Ultra suite rather than the full ChemBioOffice suite. Statistics from the vendor and the Chemistry Department indicate that very few users were taking advantage of the additional features of ChemBioOffice.
ChemBioDraw is be available to all students, staff, and faculty of Cornell University, including the Weill Cornell College of Medicine, and all Cornell-affiliated institutions, such as the Boyce Thompson Institute.
ChemBioDraw is offered under an annual term license term that runs from 14 July through 13 July of the following calendar year.
