STN Express Adds Capabilities for Bioscience

Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS; has announced the release of STN Express with Discover! 6.01, a new version of its software used by information professionals to access patent, scientific, and technical databases on the STN International network ( The updated version provides added capabilities for bioscience research. Among other new features, STN Express 6.01 will permit launching CAS Registry BLAST to identify a wealth of sequence information in the CAS Registry database and then find related literature and patents. Professional searchers will now also be able to better support users of SciFinder, the desktop research tool for scientists, with the ability to accept answer keys from SciFinder and use them for searching on STN.

The enhancements were made in response to users' requests. Suzan A. Brown, CAS marketing director, said: "Our new BLAST capabilities are well-suited to bioscience research needs, including weekly and biweekly alerts. In addition, post-processing features are better than ever for creating reports and tables from search results."

STN Express is one of several interface options for accessing databases on STN International, the scientific and technical information network. Other options include STN Easy, a Web-based product that offers simplified search features for users who are not experienced STN searchers, and STN on the Web, which provides traditional online access plus the benefits of the Web for professional searchers. CAS operates STN International, a network of scientific and technical databases, in association with FIZ Karlsruhe in Germany and the Japan Science and Technology Corp.
