Welcome to DRAMP Database

DRAMP (data repository of antimicrobial peptides) was launched online on May 20, 2013. DRAMP is an open-access and manually curated database harboring diverse annotations of AMPs including sequence information, structure information, antimicrobial activity information, hemolytic activity information, physicochemical information, patent information, clinical information and reference information. DRAMP currently contains 19899 entries, including 5084 general AMPs, 14739 patents and 76 peptides in drug development.

Clinical dataset is specically incorporated in our database, providing information of sequence, structure, activity (MIC in vitro), clinical trail, therapeutic application, company and a summary of literature sources of pre- or clinical AMPs, in order to offer a data source for drug development of antimicrobials.

Next, we will conduct data mining work and design work based on our collection of AMPs, 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 set out to establish a high-efficient classifier on the large general dataset and consider to analyse the clinical dataset, though relatively small, using bioinformatic methods.
