Linking diseases, drugs and the druggable proteome. The Illuminating the Druggable Genome Knowledge Management Center (IDG KMC) evaluates, organizes and distils more than 80 protein-centric and over 20 gene-centric resources for over 20,000 curated human proteins (UniProt). The IDG KMC


New! TiD Publication: Impact of similarity threshold on the topology of molecular similarity networks and clustering outcomes

We observed that the average clustering coefficient versus similarity threshold function can be char‑ acterized by the presence of a peak that covers a range of similarity threshold values. This peak is preceded by a steep decline in the number

Drug Repurposing Projects Ketorolac Virtual screening by TiD identified the R-enantiomer of ketorolac as a hit for blocking GTPase activation in response to growth factor stimulus. Ketorolac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) used for pain relief under the trade


Illuminating the Druggable Genome (IDG) Targetcentral.ws

The goal of the Illuminating the Druggable Genome (IDG) program is to improve our understanding of the properties and functions of proteins that are currently unannotated within the four most commonly drug-targeted protein families: the G-protein coupled receptors, nuclear receptors,



Cheminformatics is the application of informatics and computation to chemistry.  Historically, cheminformatics has been associated with drug discovery science.  Cheminformatics encompasses a wide range of foundational disciplines and computational technologies, from graph theory based molecular representations, to machine learning based


Translational Bioinformatics

Translational Bioinformatics (TBI): The science of leveraging biomolecular data into clinical medicine. Here is a much longer definition from the American Medical Informatics Association site. Translational Bioinformatics is the development of storage, analytic, and interpretive methods to optimize the transformation of increasingly
