ChEMBL and UniChem, programmatically

ChEMBL is a database of bioactivity data that links drug-like compounds to their biological targets. UniChem is a database that produces cross-references between chemical structure identifiers from different databases. Both ChEMBL and UniChem can be accessed through an interactive interface as well as programmatically via web services. 

This webinar will provide an overview of programmatic strategies that can be used to extract data from ChEMBL and UniChem alongside examples to illustrate the applications.

By the end of the video you will be able to:

  • Describe the structure of the ChEMBL and UniChem APIs
  • Identify suitable API endpoints to extract data types of interest
  • Explore more complex queries that can be performed using the APIs
