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 20599 entries, 5784 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 summarized data, analytics, metadata, and bulk downloads. 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 patent AMPs.

We will conduct data mining and design work based on data collected of DRAMP, as those data are valuable for guiding develment and optimization of AMP-drugs. 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. If you find some errors in the website, please send an email to

  • New Released Structures


    • September 14,2020 31 entries are re-updated in the General dataset. 4 redundant entries(DRAMP20840, DRAMP20931, DRAMP20954 and DRAMP20962) are deleted and such DRAMP_IDs will keep empty until new entries are added. Besides, we redo the "Submit" function and now you can easily contribute valuable information about AMPs. The information will be checked before presented in DRAMP.
    • August 17,2020 158 new entries are added in DRAMP. 9 entries are natural AMPs which are all animal AMPs. 149 entris are synthetic AMPs. Next update will be soon, which foucuses on some corrections and complements of existing entries.
    • May 5,2020 207 new entries are added in DRAMP. 13 entries are natural AMPs which contain 12 animal AMPs and 1 plant AMPs. 194 entries are synthetic AMPs. 48 entries are re-updated in the General dataset. Some errors in Synthetic dataset are fixed.
    • February 8,2020 171 new entries are added in DRAMP. 13 entries are natural AMPs which are all animal AMPs. 158 entries are synthetic AMPs. 10 entries are re-updated in the General dataset. Some errors in Natural dataset are fixed.
    • November 14,2019 157 new entries are added in DRAMP. 33 entries are natural AMPs including 31 animal AMPs and 2 plant AMPs. 124 entries are synthetic AMPs.
    • September 4,2019 New classifications by taxonomy which are "Archaea AMPs" and "Protozoal AMPs" have been updated in the browse list.
