UniChem: Quick tour


This quick tour provides a brief introduction to UniChem, a compound identifier mapping service. It covers the scientific principles behind the tool, and outlines the use of UniChem and UniChem 'Connectivity Search' to directly locate identical and related molecules in various sources.

An undergraduate knowledge of biology or chemistry would be useful.

This quick tour was developed as part of the BioMedBridges project, funded by FP7 Capacities Specific Programme, grant agreement no. 284209.
