Learn to use DrugBank, a free, web-based tool that combines chemoinformatics with bioinformatics. Explore both the chemical and biological nature of drugs in silico using DrugCards, the functional units of DrugBank. Each DrugCard represents a unique drug in the database and contains over 100 information fields collated from numerous scientific sources. DrugCards provide extensive information on approved drugs, biotech drugs, small molecules, experimental drugs, and nutraceuticals, yet DrugCards are easy to read and shuffle through. You can query DrugBank with either chemical or biological terms, including the protein targets of drugs or the enzymes that metabolize them. A new feature correlates genetic single nucleotide polymorphisms with adverse drug reactions and drug effectiveness. Ideal for the student, scientist, drug discoverer, clinician, pharmacist, or general public, DrugBank will help you find the answers to your questions about pharmaceuticals and their underlying biological effects.
