    1. 2. Chemistry Resources Mary Markland Southeast Clinical Campus Librarian UND School of Medicine and Health Sciences 701-293-4173 [email_address] March 29, 2008 This project has been funded in whole or in part with federal funds from the National Library of Medicine,National Institutes of Health, under Contract No. NO1-LM-6-3505.
    2. 3. Goals <ul><li>Chemisty </li></ul><ul><ul><li>ChemID plus </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>PubChem </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Toxnet </li></ul><ul><ul><li>HSDB </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Toxline </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>TRI </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Others </li></ul></ul>Provide a brief overview of free databases available through the National Institutes of Health.
    3. 4. NLM SIS
    4. 5. Chemical Information <ul><li> </li></ul>
    5. 6. ChemIDplus <ul><li>Chemical dictionary/directory file </li></ul><ul><li>Two versions: “Lite” & Advanced </li></ul><ul><li>379,000 + chemical records </li></ul><ul><li>257,000 + structural records </li></ul><ul><ul><li>In the Advanced file only </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Requires JAVA or CHIME software (free) </li></ul></ul>
    6. 7. Searching ChemIDplus <ul><li>Search by chemical name or CAS Registry Number </li></ul><ul><li>Click on “search” to retrieve results from the “Lite” version </li></ul><ul><li>Use the Advanced button to access the Advanced capabilities </li></ul>
    7. 8. Looking for information on ricin
    8. 10. Click here for access to all the Basic Information on a single web page Describe the general category assigned by a given source to a chemical based on toxicity, use and application, pharmacologic and/or therapeutic category, and status on certain chemical lists. Gives a table of toxicity information by organism tested, test type, dose, effect, and source of the given information A description of a compound’s use and utility, often from MeSH controlled vocabulary Nice table of melting & boiling points, water solubility, vapor pressure, and more Names and synonyms associated with this substance
    9. 11. Molecular formula
    10. 12. ChemIDplus Advanced
    11. 13. Structure Searching! <ul><li>Draw structures </li></ul><ul><li>Search for substructures: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Find the drawn structure embedded in other structures </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Do similarity searching </li></ul>
    12. 15. Similarity searching Use this box on the results page or Use the Transfer Structure box to move the structure to the initial search page for ChemIDplus Advanced. Both similarity and substructure searches can be done there.
    13. 16. Results of similarity searching <ul><li>The 1st result in the similarity list will be the substance searched: it is 100% similar to the query structure. </li></ul><ul><li>The following substances will be labeled as to how similar they are to the original: </li></ul>
    14. 17. Added functionality <ul><li>Transfer the structure to the query page </li></ul><ul><li>Do a similarity search for molecules 80% similar to this one </li></ul><ul><li>Enlarge this structure and provide access to the 3-D model </li></ul>
    15. 18. Advantages of Advanced… <ul><li>So, what can ChemIDplus Advanced do that the “Lite” version can’t do? </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>3-D structures </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Structure-based searching </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Similarity searching </li></ul></ul></ul>
    16. 19.
