The Open PHACTS Explorer is just one of many tools designed to help you use the data integrated in Open PHACTS to streamline your research. Our applications offer different ways to browse, manipulate, and visualise the data in Open PHACTS.

If you’ve developed an app that you’d like to see featured on this page, or if you have an idea for an app and would like to collaborate with us, please let us know.

ChemBioNavigator allows you to query Open PHACTS and visualise groups of related molecules in chemical and biological space. For an introduction, take a look at BioSolveIT's recent webinar.

Developed by the University of Hamburg and BioSolveIT GmbH

Collector allows users to extract compounds annotated with experimental data from Open PHACTS, and build QSAR predictive models. Users can filter by target, biological data ranges and physicochemical properties.

Developed by PSMAR as part of the eTOX project

COMBINE (COnstruct cheMical and BIological Network) can be used to build and visualise interactive chemical and biological networks. Users can create networks linking structures to targets to proteins to diseases to pathways.

GARField is an abbreviation for Graph-Activity-Relationship visualisation Field, and is a "polypharmacology browser" for exploring, visualising and predicting interactions between targets and compounds.

Developed by the Technical University of Denmark

SciBites provides a real-time drug discovery/pharma information portal, connecting the latest news on competitive intelligence for pharma and biotech companies directly to Open PHACTS pharmacology data.

Developed by SciBite Limited

Previous Applications

Other example applications were developed during the course of the Open PHACTS project to demonstrate the flexibility and potential of the Open PHACTS Discovery Platform. Although these apps are no longer supported, they demonstrate some of the breadth of ways in which Open PHACTS can be used.

AQnowledge developed a bookmarklet that could be used in a browser to identify concepts of scientific significance in text. Highlighted concepts would link back to further information, including entries from the Open PHACTS Explorer.

PharmaTrek was a tool to navigate pharmacological space in a flexible and interactive way. You can see a video demonstration of PharmaTrek’s visualisation features on our YouTube channel. PharmaTrek was developed by PSMAR.
