About Us

About Binding Database The Binding Database projects aims to make experimental data on the noncovalent association of molecules in solution searchable via the WWW.  The initial focus is on biomolecular systems, but data on host-guest and supramolecular systems are also important and being included over time.

It is expected that the enhanced access to data provided by this resource will facilitate drug-discovery, the design of self-assembling systems, and the development of predictive computer models of binding.

The Binding Database is based at the Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of California, San Diego, La Jolla, CA.
