Chemical & Biological Engineering Research: Datasets

Selected National Institutes of Health Datasets & Data Repositories

  • Nanomaterial Registry
    The Nanomaterial Registry is an authoritative, fully curated resource that archives research data on nanomaterials and their biological and environmental implications. You can browse the archive by material type, size, shape, and surface area. For more information, see the user guide on how to access Nanomaterial Registry data.

  • PubChem
    PubChem provides information on the biological activities and properties of over 92 million small molecules. It includes substance information, compound structures, and bioactivity data in three primary databases, Substance, Compound, and BioAssay, respectively. The Substance database contains more than 223 million records; the Compound database contains more than 92 million unique structures; and the BioAssay database contains more than 1.2 million bioassays. The databases can be searched by chemical name, Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) nRegistry Number, keywords, and structure. PubChem is an initiative of the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) of the National Library of Medicine (NLM). For more information, see the PubChem FAQ page.

  • Mouse Phenome Database
    A collaborative standardized collection of measured data on laboratory mouse strains and populations. Its purpose is to characterize mouse strains and populations in order to facilitate translational discoveries and to assist in selection of strains for experimental studies. Includes baseline phenotype data sets as well as studies of drug, diet, disease and aging effect. Also includes protocols, projects and publications, and SNP, variation and gene expression studies.
