VenomKB, a new knowledge base for aggregating and identifying therapeutic uses of animal venoms and venom compounds.
VenomKB is designed to be a repository for putative venom therapies and discoveries about venom that may lead to an understanding of their molecular function. The knowledge base consists of multiple database tables designed for addressing different stages and aspects of the emerging field of “venom therapeutics”. The data are available in tabular form or as SQL database dumps that can be downloaded for batch processing and local analysis.
Venoms and their components have been used for therapeutic purposes for millenia, treating illnesses as varied as chronic pain, psychiatric disorders, Parkinson’s disease, and even sudden deafness (among many others).
