Welcome to DRAMP Database

DRAMP(Data repository of antimicrobial peptides) is an open-access and manually curated database harboring diverse annotations of AMPs including sequences, structures, activities, physicochemical, patent, clinical and reference information. The clinical dataset also includes information on the clinical trial phase, therapeutic applications, company and preclinical or clinical AMP literature sources.

DRAMP currently contains 19899 entries, 5084 of which are general AMPs (containing natural and synthetic AMPs), 14739 patent AMPs and 76 AMPs in drug development (preclinical or clinical stage).

Data in the DRAMP is made available under an CCBY 4.0 License. You are entitled to access and use the services and download or extract data. The free services are offered for the purpose of providing access to summarised data, analytics or metadata, and are distinguished from bulk downloads or data-feeds. If you need the data from the DRAMP for research, please cite the article of original author for general and clinical AMPs, or obtain the authorization for patented AMPs.

We will conduct data mining and design work based on data collected of DRAMP, as those data are valuable to guide AMP-drug development and optimization. Prediction function based on computational strategies is also expected in our database. We will set out to establish Some high-efficient classifiers.

To all regular downloads, please cite our publications.
