Open PHACTS
A sustainable, open, and interoperable information infrastructure for applied life science and drug discovery research and development

OUR GOALS

INTEGRATED DATA

Open PHACTS integrates data from sources like ChEMBL, neXTProt and DrugBank to create over 3 billion triples of semantically linked life science data.

OPEN TO ALL

The core Open PHACTS API and platform will always be free to access for all users, to advance life sciences and biomedical research for public benefit.

MEMBERSHIP BENEFITS

Foundation Members enjoy early access to new features, dedicated support services, self-contained local platform installation, and voting rights.

“Queries that once took days can now be done in less than an hour.”

In 2010, researchers in drug discovery faced a problem: searching for information across existing open databases was becoming a serious research bottleneck as volumes of data increased. Open PHACTS was built to solve this problem by bringing together vast amounts of linked data in a single integrated, open infrastructure—free for anyone to access and use. One pharmaceutical collaborator estimated that this pre-competitive, collaborative effort has already “saved millions” in drug discovery research.
