New ChEMBL-NTD Depositions
We are very pleased to announce the release of two new datasets on the ChEMBL-NTD portal.
The first dataset is provided by the Drug for Neglected Diseases initiative (DNDi) and is focused on the selection and optimization of hits from a high-throughput phenotypic screen against Trypanosoma cruzi. The paper describing the dataset in more detail can be accessed here and the data can be downloaded from here.
The second dataset from the DeRisi Lab UCSF and is focused on the screening of MMVs Malaria Box compounds in Plasmodium falciparum, to understand if anti-malarial compounds target the apicoplast organelle. More details about the dataset can be found here and the data can be downloaded from here.
Both datasets will be loaded into the next version of ChEMBL, which will be due out early next year.
The ChEMBL - Neglected Tropical Disease portal is a repository for Open Access primary screening and medicinal chemistry data directed at neglected diseases. If you would like to deposit your data here please get in contact.
