The Antimicrobial Peptide Database (APD) was originally created by a graduate student, Zhe Wang, as his master's thesis in the laboratory of Dr. Guangshun Wang. The project was initiated in 2002 and the first version of the database was open to the public in August 2003. It contained 525 peptide entries, which can be searched in multiple ways, including APD ID, peptide name, amino acid sequence, original location, PDB ID, structure, methods for structural determination, peptide length, charge, hydrophobic content, antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, anticancer, and hemolytic activity. Some results of this bioinformatics tool were reported in the 2004 database paper. The peptide data stored in the APD were gleaned from the literature (PubMed, PDB, Google, and Swiss-Prot) manually in over a decade.
>>>!!!Bacterial (BCSDB) and Plant&Fungal (PFCSDB) carbohydrate structure databases have been merged into a single database, CSDB!!!<<< BCSDB database is aimed at provision of structural, bibliographic, taxonomic and related information on bacterial carbohydrate structures. Two key points of this service are: covering - is above 90% in the scope of bacterial carbohydrates. This means the negative search answer remains valuable scientific information. And consistence - we manually check the data, and aim at hight quality error-free content. The main source of data is a retrospective literature analysis. About 25% of data were imported from CCSD (Carbbank, ceased in 1997, University of Georgia, Athens; structures published before 1995) with subsequent manual curation and approval. Current coverage is displayed in red on the top of the left menu. The time lag between publication of new data and their deposition ~ 1 year. The scope is "bacterial carbohydrates" and covers nearly all structures of this class published up to 2016. Bacterial means that a structure has been found in bacteria or obtained by modification of those found in bacteria. Carohydrate means a structure composed of any residues linked by glycosidic, ester, amidic, ketal, phospho- or sulpho-diester bonds, in which at least one residue is a sugar or its derivative.
