ChEMBL is an Open Database of over one million bioactive molecules with associated quantitative bioactivities. It is built primarily from abstraction of the primary medicinal chemistry literature and is therefore focussed on potent and functional active molecules and the SAR trends around them. ChEMBL indexes the data by molecular target, binding domain, organism and provides a useful platform in many aspects of drug discovery ranging across areas such as target prioritisation, screening library design, target identification of hits from phenotypes screens, prediction of safety liabilities, multi-parameter optimisation, and also in drug repositioning studies. The structure and content of the database will be reviewed, and then use cases for translational genomics and academic drug discovery will be presented.
