PharmaTrek, a polypharmacology browser now released

PharmaTrek, a web-based tool developed by M.Carmen Carrascosa, member of the Chemogenomics group of GRIB (IMIM/ UPF) led by Jordi Mestres, within the framework of the EU funded project Open PHACTS, is officially released.  Try it out now:

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.

This tool offers a totally new way of questioning pharmacology databases in a more interactive manner. Please, have a look at the demo video.
