Abstract [en]

Metabolomic publications and databases use different database identifiers or even trivial names which disable queries across databases or between studies. The best way to annotate metabolites is by chemical structures, encoded by the International Chemical Identifier code (InChI) or InChIKey. We have implemented a web-based Chemical Translation Service that performs batch conversions of the most common compound identifiers, including CAS, CHEBI, compound formulas, Human Metabolome Database HMDB, InChI, InChIKey, IUPAC name, KEGG, LipidMaps, Pub-Chem CID+SID, SMILES, and chemical synonym names. Batch conversion downloads of 1,410 CIDs are performed in 2.5 minutes. Structures are automatically displayed.
