Publication TypeJournal Article
AuthorsKlekota, J., Roth FP, and Schreiber SL
AbstractQuery Chem ( is a Web program that integrates chemical structure and text-based searching using publicly available chemical databases and Google's Web Application Program Interface (API). Query Chem makes it possible to search the Web for information about chemical structures without knowing their common names or identifiers. Furthermore, a structure can be combined with textual query terms to further restrict searches. Query Chem's search results can retrieve many interesting structure-property relationships of biomolecules on the Web.
