Search EAWAG-BBD Structures

Select a search type and options, draw what you want to search for, and click the search button. Substructure searching looks for molecules containing the given substructure. Similarity searching looks for molecules that are similar to the query structure. Exact searching looks for the molecule that is identical to the query structure. For help on drawing, click the ? sign. Some browsers do not support the Java applet used here. If you have problems, instead use the SMILES string structure search.

Options: The higher the similarity threshold, the more similar are the retrieved molecules to the query molecule. Max. hits specifies an upper limit for the number of molecules the query returns. Max. time specifies an upper limit for the length of time the search may take.
