The first public molecular recognition database, BindingDB supports research, education and practice in drug discovery, pharmacology and related fields.

BindingDB contains 2.9M data for 1.2M Compounds and 9.3K Targets. Of those, 1,352K data for 627K Compounds and 4.5K Targets were curated by BindingDB curators. BindingDB is a FAIRsharing resource.

If BindingDB was of value to your research, please take a moment to donate to this nonprofit project. Your donation will let us provide you with more data and improved service.

About Us

About Binding Database The Binding Database projects aims to make experimental data on the noncovalent association of molecules in solution searchable via the WWW.  The initial focus is on biomolecular systems, but data on host-guest and supramolecular systems are also important and being included over time.

It is expected that the enhanced access to data provided by this resource will facilitate drug-discovery, the design of self-assembling systems, and the development of predictive computer models of binding.

The Binding Database is based at the Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of California, San Diego, La Jolla, CA.
