High quality chemical databases are struggling with protecting their data from the flow of wild machine-generated chemistry and lower-quality data. The period of primarily human curation prior to deposition in a database is gone and quality-conscious databases need to heavily rely on automated validation checks. An automated chemical validation system is being developed by the cheminformatics team at the Royal Society of Chemistry to be the “quality gatekeeper” of databases at the point of deposition. ChemSpider is leading a community-wide standardization approach starting with our support of the Open PHACTS semantic web project, an Innovative Medicines Initiative. The Chemical Validation and Standardization Platform (CVSP) is being designed as an open, flexible chemical validation and standardization platform that validates and standardizes chemical records. This presentation will review the existing beta version of the system and work in progress.
