IPNA collaborates with the CIFP César Manrique in the development of scientific applications

Two students from the Advanced Technical Diploma in Multiplatform Application Development at the CIFP César Manrique have completed their curricular internships at the Institute of Natural Products and Agrobiology of the CSIC, with the aim of developing a scientific application from scratch to improve the functionality of the CSIC's open source application iJ/dJ-DP4 Calculator. The students, Domingo González Triviño and David Díaz Herrera, created a software with a graphic interface that facilitates the extraction of data from theoretical Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) calculations based on which this platform determines the structure of organic molecules. In this way, the goal was to improve the functionality of the existing application, facilitating its use and adapting it to the needs of the researchers. However, the students' work has not been limited to the development of the new application. Instead, the close collaboration of the researcher Antonio Daranas, from the Molecular Recognition and Supramolecular Chemistry group, has allowed them to make further progress in testing errors and understanding the difficulties that the different stages of work in a scientific tool such as this can entail, including the necessary calibration and accuracy in the use of data.
