9 Description The Human Metabolome Database (HMDB) is a freely available electronic database containing detailed information about small molecule metabolites found in the human body. It is intended to be used for applications in metabolomics, clinical chemistry, biomarker discovery and general education. The database is designed to contain or link three kinds of data: 1) chemical data, 2) clinical data, and 3) molecular biology/biochemistry data A description of the source, often taken from the home page. General Info
10 Process of Data Acquisition SD file download from source, converted to InChIs within UniChem A description of how the data is obtained from the source. General Info
11 Number or Date? date Sources may indicate the presence of updated data either with a release number, or simply by a date. General Info
12 aux_for_url 0 Flag to indicate whether this source requires auxiliary data to create hyperlinks to compound-specific pages in the source. 1=Yes, requires auxiliary data, 0=No. See FAQ for more information. General Info

16 Number of records loaded without comments 114092 The number of records (ie:'Assignments') loaded from the source when this source was last updated, without comments. This number does not necessarily reflect the total number of records in UniChem from a source, as some larger sources are loaded incrementally. Go to the Structures by Source page for the numbers of structures from each source. Latest Release Info
17 Number of records loaded with comments 0 Some records are loaded with a comment See 'Rules for Loading' page for further information. Latest Release Info
18 Number of records skipped 0 Some data is not loaded into UniChem, for various reasons (eg: structures may be too large) ... See ' Rules for Loading' page for further information. Latest Release Info
19 src release date 18-DEC-17 If parameter 11 is 'date', then date on which file was downloaded from source, or last modification date of source file. Latest Release Info
20 src release number If parameter 11 is 'number', then Release number of latest data set from the source. Latest Release Info


** A discrepancy between these two numbers indicates that the current data set contains either multiple ids mapping to the same structure, or single ids mapping to multiple structures, or a combination of these. This should not be considered unusual, especially if the source does not use standard_inchi as the structure normalizer.
