RSC|ChemSpider is one of the world’s largest online resources for chemistry related data and services. Developed with the intention of delivering access to structure-based chemistry data via the internet the ChemSpider platform hosts over 26 million unique chemical compounds aggregated from over 400 data sources and provides an environment for the community to both annotate and curate these existing data as well as deposit new data to the system. The search system delivers flexible querying capabilities together with links to external sites for publication and patent data. This presentation will review the present capabilities of the ChemSpider system providing direct examples of how to use the system to source high quality data of value to chemists. We will discuss some of the challenges associated with validating data quality and examine how ChemSpider is a part of the new “semantic web for chemistry”. ChemSpider has also spawned a number of additional projects include ChemSpider SyntheticPages for hosting openly peer-reviewed chemical synthesis articles, Learn Chemistry Wiki for students learning chemistry and SpectraSchool for learning spectroscopy.

    • “ Incorrect” structures – assertions, timelines etc
    • “ Incorrect” names associated with structures
    • Properties
    • Links
    • Publications
    • ENORMOUS CHALLENGE
  • The Structure of Vitamin K?
  • MeSH
    • A lipid cofactor that is required for normal blood clotting. Several forms of vitamin K have been identified: VITAMIN K 1 (phytomenadione) derived from plants , VITAMIN K 2 (menaquinone) from bacteria, and synthetic naphthoquinone provitamins, VITAMIN K 3 (menadione). Vitamin K 3 provitamins, after being alkylated in vivo, exhibit the antifibrinolytic activity of vitamin K. Green leafy vegetables, liver, cheese, butter, and egg yolk are good sources of vitamin K

  • Public Domain Databases
    • Our databases are a mess…
    • Non-curated databases are proliferating errors
    • We source and deposit data between databases
    • Original sources of errors hard to determine
    • Curation is time-consuming and challenging
  • Stop Whining – Fix it
  • Crowdsourced Curation
    • Crowd-sourced curation: identify/tag errors, edit names, synonyms, identify records to deprecate
  • Search “Vitamin H”
  • “ Curate” Identifiers
  • “ Curate” Identifiers
  • “ Curate” Identifiers
  • Standards : Structure Standardization

  • What needs to happen?
    • Standards
      • Standardization of structures
        • ChEBI/PubChem sharing
        • InChI adoption
  • The InChI Identifier
  • Multiple Layers
  • InChIStrings Hash to InChIKeys
  • Vancomycin – Search the Internet
  • Vancomycin Search Molecular SKELETON Search Full Molecule
  • Full Skeleton Search: 104 Hits
  • Full Molecule Search: 4 Hits
  • Crowdsourcing Works
    • >130 people have deposited data and participated in data curation
    • Different level curators check each other
    • More curators and depositors are encouraged!

      • Share data, share efforts and speed the process
  • Antony Williams vs Identifiers Passport ID Dad, Tony, others SSN Green Card License 5 email addresses ChemSpiderman (blog, Twitter account, Facebook, Friendfeed) OpenID … .
  • Aspirin names and synonyms
    • Text searches depend on correct association
    • 335 suggested identifiers for Aspirin just on PubChem!
    • Disambiguation dictionaries are necessary, not just for authors!
  •  
  •  
  • The Final Search Strategy
  • All Those Names, One Structure
  • Ambiguity in Identifiers
  • Curated Dictionaries Matter
  • Success Depends on Dictionaries
  • Validated Name-Structure Dictionaries
    • Chemical name dictionaries are used for:
        • Text-mining (publications, patents)
          • Used to index PubMed and link to Google Patents
        • Linking to other databases – think Biology!
          • When structures are not available drug names link
        • Searching the web
          • Names link to structures link to InChIs
  • I want to know about “Vincristine” If all algorithms work then everything on the page is correct by default except the name-structure relationship!
  • Vincristine: Identifiers and Properties
  • Vincristine: Vendors and Sources Linked by Structure
  • Vincristine: Patents Linked by Name
  • Vincristine: Articles Linked by Name
  • Challenges of Complex Molecules Yohimbine
  • Originally 15 compounds “called” Yohimbine 54 Skeletons for Yohimbine
      • Internal and external content
      • Built to meet primary use-case
      • Tailored indexes and GUIs
      • Internal unique language & metadata
      • Poor interoperability/integration
      • Powerpoint, Documents, Excel
      • Many suppliers of systems and content in a single workflow
    Pharma Information Tombs Literature Patents News Pipeline SAR CSRs Safety In vivo Etc
  • What could create change?
    • Harvard Business Review (2010)
    • “ One change would make a substantial difference [ to drug R&D ] : the creation of agreed-upon standards for digitally representing drug assets. ”
  • It is so difficult to navigate… What’s the structure? Are they in our file? What’s similar? What’s the target? Pharmacology data? Known Pathways? Working On Now? Connections to disease? Expressed in right cell type? Competitors? IP?
    • Open PHACTS Project
    • Develop a set of robust standards…
    • Implement the standards in a semantic integration hub
    • Deliver services to support drug discovery programs in pharma and public domain
    • 22 partners, 8 pharmaceutical companies, 3 biotechs
    • 36 months project
    Guiding principle is open access, open usage, open source - Key to standards adoption -

  • The Future of Chemistry on the Web?
    • Public compound databases federate & build a linked environment of validated data!
    • Data validation needs are not ignored
    • Publishers layer on information to make publications discoverable
    • Public-Private databases can be linked
    • Open Data proliferate
