UniChem: EMBL-EBI’s mapping tool for small molecule database identifiers: webinar


Jon Chambers and Anne Hersey present this webinar on UniChem a simple system developed to cross-reference compounds across databases both internal to EMBL-EBI and externally. UniChem currently has cross-references to 140 million compounds in 30 different databases. 

This webinar willl discuss what UniChem is and how it can be used to retrieve the following compound information:

  • Bioactivity data 
  • Toxicity data
  • Compound purchasability
  • Patent information

This webinar took place on 29th March 2017 and is an update to a previous version recorded in 2015. It is best viewed in full screen mode using Google Chrome.

See the EMBL-EBI training pages for a list of upcoming webinars.

This webinar is aimed at scientists with an interest in learning more about UniChem.

No prior knowledge of bioinformatics is required, but an undergraduate level understanding of biology would be useful.
