About ExplorEnz

ExplorEnz was developed at Trinity College Dublin in 2005 as a new way to access the data of the IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature List. The data, which are stored in a MySQL database, preserve the formatting of chemical names according to IUPAC standards. A simple, easy to use, web-based query interface is provided (Search), along with an advanced search engine for more complex queries (Advanced Search).

ExplorEnz is developed and maintained by Andrew McDonald.

Please use the forms provided to submit suggestions for new enzyme entries or to report errors in existing entries.

Downloads of the database are available via FTP as SQL or XML.

This work was funded primarily by Science Foundation Ireland (Grant no: SFI 02/IN.1/B043-Tipton). We are very grateful for this support.
