Open access therapeutic drug targets database

A new open access database for novel/potential therapeutic drug targets is here. This database contains drug targets, inlcude vaccine targets, reported in published research articles.  All novel drug targets are linked to PubMed, Google Scholar, GeneBank, UniProt, DrugBank, ChemEMBL, Google patents, European patents, WO(PCT) database and Google Patents.

Please follow this link to view thedatabase: http://www.sciclips.com/sciclips/drug-targets-main.do.

Energy Citations Database

The Energy Citations Database (ECD) provides free access to over 2.6 million science research citations with continued growth through regular updates. There are over 221,000 electronic documents, primarily from 1943 forward, available via the database. Citations and documents are made publicly available by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).

ECD includes scientific and technical research results in disciplines of interest to DOE such as chemistry, physics, materials, environmental science, geology, engineering, mathematics, climatology, oceanography, and computer science. It includes bibliographic citations to report literature, conference papers, journal articles, books, dissertations, and patents.

ECD was created and developed by DOE’s Office of Scientific and Technical Information with the science-attentive citizen in mind. It contains energy and energy‑related scientific and technical information collected by the Department of Energy (DOE) and its predecessor agencies, the Energy Research & Development Administration (ERDA) and the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC).

Therapeutic Drug Targets Database

This is a unique and comprehensive database on therapeutic drug targets. This database contains drug targets reported in US patents or US/International patent applications. The drug targets are also classified according to specific drug types (e.g. small molecule drugs, protein drugs, antibody drugs, siRNA drugs, miRNA drugs etc.) and disease types. The assays and methods used for characterizing each drug targets are listed as well. In addition to this, all the drug targets are linked to PubMed, Google Scholar, GeneBank, UniProt, USPTO database, WO(PCT) database and Google Patents.

Bioprotocols Online

SciClips launched a unique database of bioprotocols for researchers. Researchers will have free access to these bioprotocols which have been extracted from published journal articles and patents/patent applications.

There are thousands of protocols on molecular biology, proteomics, biological imaging, virology, immunology, stem cells, drug discovery, immunoassays, cell biology, epigenetics, genomics, plant biology, microbiology, tissue microarrays and more. In addition to this, there are new sections on high throughput screening (HTS) and biopharmaceutical assay protocols. All the protocols are linked to the articles or patent/patent application .
