ChEBI: Chemical Entities of Biological Interest
|European Bioinformatics Institute|
|ChEBI is a collection of data on entities of biological interest.
This database concentrates on assembling data on smaller chemical compounds, such as atoms, molecules, ions, radicals etc. These should be produced in nature or be synthetic molecules affecting biological processes in living organisms.
ChEBI does not generally include molecules directly encoded by the genome.
The database contains 31,651 entries with annotations.
A keyword search option is available.
In addition to this an advanced search option, which includes a structure drawing tool, is provided.
The ChEBI database can be searched individually or in combination with other databases.
