Transcript of "Ebi public meeting on internet chemistry databases november 2010"

  1. 1. ChemSpider -Connecting and Curating Online Chemistry Resources Antony Williams EBI, November 30th 2010
  2. 2. Chemistry on the Internet  100s of websites serving up chemistry data, SDF files of structures and data  Some primary resources : PubChem, ChEBI, DrugBank, ChemIDPlus, Wikipedia  ChemSpider “links” chemistry on the internet  Almost 25 million compounds, 400 data sources  Allows community deposition, curation, annotation  Integrating properties, publications, patents, media  Text, structure, substructure (in testing) searching
  3. 3. www.chemspider.com
  4. 4. Search for a Chemical
  5. 5. Available Information…  Linked to vendors, safety data, toxicity, metabolism
  6. 6. We Have Delivered the Vision “Build a Structure Centric Community to Serve Chemists”  Integrate chemical structure data on the web  Create a “structure-based hub” to information, data and algorithmic predictions  Let chemists contribute their own data  Allow the community to curate/correct data
  7. 7. How Did We Build It?  We deal in Molfiles or SDF files – including coordinates  We do rudimentary filtering – valence checking, charge imbalance – prior to deposition  We have our own “business logic” to standardize  We use InChI to “aggregate tautomers” to one record  Link out to external sites where possible using IDs
  8. 8. Inherited Errors  We have inherited errors from every database… all public compound databases, including ours, have errors  “Incorrect” structures – assertions, timelines etc  “Incorrect” names associated with structures  Properties  Links  Publications  ENORMOUS CHALLENGE
  9. 9. What is the Structure of Vitamin K?
  10. 10. 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
  11. 11. What is the Structure of Vitamin K1?
  12. 12. What is the Structure of Vitamin K1?
  13. 13. CAS’s Common Chemistry
  14. 14. Wikipedia
  15. 15. ChEBI – Manual Curation
  16. 16. PubChem
  17. 17. “2-methyl-3-(3,7,11,15-tetramethylhexadec-2- enyl)naphthalene-1,4-dione”  Variants of systematic names on PubChem  2-methyl-3-[(E,7R,11R)-3,7,11,15-tetramethyl  2-methyl-3-[(E,7S,11R)-3,7,11,15-tetramethyl  2-methyl-3-[(E,7R,11S)-3,7,11,15-tetramethyl  2-methyl-3-[(E,7S,11S)-3,7,11,15-tetramethyl  2-methyl-3-[(E,11S)-3,7,11,15-tetramethyl  2-methyl-3-[(E)-3,7,11,15-tetramethyl  2-methyl-3-(3,7,11,15-tetramethyl  2-methyl-3-[(E)-3,7,11,15-tetramethyl
  18. 18. Public Domain Chemistry 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, challenging and exacting  An examination of quality in databases – inter/intra lab comparison of processes for 150 drugs
  19. 19. Vytorin: Ezetimibe/Simvastatin
  20. 20. Vytorin: Ezetimibe/Simvastatin
  21. 21. Vytorin: Ezetimibe/Simvastatin
  22. 22. Vytorin: Ezetimibe/Simvastatin
  23. 23. Vytorin: Ezetimibe/Simvastatin

  25. 25. Symbicort: Budesonide + Formoterol ChemIDPlus Wikipedia
  26. 26. DrugBank: Search Symbicort…
  27. 27. Symbicort: Budesonide + Formoterol  PubChem  8 structures called Budesonide. 1 “correct”  6 structures called Formoterol. 1 “correct”  Search on “Symbicort” gives 1 structure.
  28. 28. Taxol: Paclitaxel 44 structures
  29. 29. Taxol: Paclitaxel Bioassay Data
  30. 30. Taxol: Paclitaxel Bioassay Data  Most Bioassay data associated with structure with one ambiguous stereocenter
  31. 31. Data on the Web – Good or Bad?? Taken from: Rafael Sidis’ Blog
  32. 32. Data on the Registry
  33. 33. Data on the Registry
  34. 34. Data on the Registry
  35. 35. How are data handled in Pharma?  Algorithms for “collapsing” data? Skeletons only?  Processing structure-name pairs?  Manual curation?  Does it matter relative to the noise in the measurements?  Do correct structure representations matter, and to who?????
  36. 36. EPA’s DailyMed
  37. 37. EPA’s DailyMed
  38. 38. EPA’s DailyMed
  39. 39.  Consider searching each of these chemical databases by chemical name (systematic name, trade name or synonym). Please mark each online resource according to how much you generally trust the results.

  41. 41. Why Curated Dictionaries Matter
  42. 42. Success Depends on Dictionaries
  43. 43. Online Curation  Online databases generally do NOT allow curation or annotation  If you find errors they stay there!  ChemSpider allows immediate curation
  44. 44. Crowdsourcing Works  Over 100 people have deposited data (structures, spectra, etc) and participated in data curation  Different level curators check each others work  Wikipedia is the modern primary example  Some curators are “madmen”…
  45. 45. Crowdsourcing Works  Over 100 people have deposited data (structures, spectra, etc) and participated in data curation  Different level curators check each others work  Wikipedia is the modern primary example  Some curators are “madmen”…  The Oxford English Dictionary
  46. 46. Collaborative Data Curation  How can we COLLECTIVELY clean online data?  ChemSpider has inherited junk from >400 data sources. Some of this has proliferated into PubChem. We should deprecate it.  We need to develop a way to share curation actions back to original data sources  A mindset of bigger is better is problematic. How many “real chemicals” are in the public databases?
  47. 47. ChemSpider  ChemSpider is free to use.  Multiple web services are available.  New data added daily.  Curation and data validation ongoing everyday.  Provided by the RSC. www.chemspider.com
