Webinar: using an API to access ChEMBL


If you use ChEMBL via the interface and are interested in programmatic approaches then join our webinar on November 10th @ 15:30 to find out more!

In this webinar, we'll provide an overview of the ChEMBL and UniChem APIs and work through some common examples.

In the meantime, don’t forget that we have further documentation on our web services as well as a recent ChEMBL webinar, a Blog and series of FAQs

Questions? Send us a message through the Helpdesk.

LSH-based similarity search in MongoDB is faster than postgres cartridge.

TL;DR: In his excellent blog post , Matt Swain described the implementation of compound similarity searches in MongoDB . Unfortunately, Matt's approach had suboptimal ( polynomial ) time complexity with respect to decreasing similarity thresholds, which renders unsuitable for production environments. In this article, we improve on the method by enhancing it with Locality Sensitive Hashing algorithm, which significantly reduces query time and outperforms RDKit PostgreSQL cartridge . myChEMBL 21 - NoSQL edition    Given that NoSQL technologies applied to computational chemistry and cheminformatics are gaining traction and popularity, we decided to include a taster in future myChEMBL releases. Two especially appealing technologies are Neo4j and MongoDB . The former is a graph database and the latter is a BSON document storage. We would like to provide IPython notebook -based tutorials explaining how to use this software to deal with common cheminformatics p
