Outline of R&D

KNApSAcK is a database describing relationships between species and their metabolites. Its family databases (KNApSAcK family) include information about efficacy of plants on human at the phenotypic level. The aim of this project is to integrate the information at the phenotypic level from KNApSAcK with the information at the molecular level from the other chemical databases (e.g. ChEMBL) for understanding the relationships between these two levels that should be helpful to predict efficacy of plants by using metabolomics data.
