About IMI


Developed by Jordi Mestres, Consorci Mar Parc de Salut de Barcelona (PSMAR)

PharmaTrek allows the navigation of pharmacological space in a flexible and interactive way, by accessing the content of ChEMBL via the Open PHACTS Discovery Platform. For instance, PharmaTrek can be used to visualise a defined affinity profile for ligands on multiple targets (Mestres et al.). The results are highly filterable, and easily linked with ligand chemical structure.
