CDD's Public Database is a Valuable Resource

CDD Public offers CDD Vault users access to more than 100 well-curated datasets that can be easily mined and analyzed in conjunction with your own private data. Compounds stored in CDD Public can be easily searched and filtered using the CDD Vault‘s easy-to-use, chemically intelligent interface. In addition, CDD has recently developed the ability to build QSAR models. This means that you can now build a model based on any property stored in CDD Public, and see how your compounds compare. This might be especially useful for predicting target selectivity or ADME/tox properties.

Working with NCBI-PubChem, CDD has now provided links to supporting data, such as bioactivity, ADME, toxicity, properties, and sources,  for the more than one million molecules in CDD Public. In addition, CDD also added 94,000 structures that were previously unknown to PubChem. These included a number of structure-activity collections for rare and neglected diseases such as malaria, tuberculosis and tropical parasites, as well as toxicity and property data. PubChem recently highlighted this announcement on their homepage:


The PubChem database has recently passed 50 million known compounds, making it quite possibly the most comprehensive collection. CDD is proud of our user community for this contribution. If you know of a public dataset that you think would be of value to the CDD community – please let us know and we will add it to the CDD Public database.

Here is a quick sampling of high interest data-sets for CDD users:

This blog is authored by members of the CDD Vault community. CDD Vault is a hosted drug discovery informatics platform that securely manages both private and external biological and chemical data. It provides core functionality including chemical registration, structure activity relationship, chemical inventory, and electronic lab notebook capabilities!
