Antibodypedia, a searchable online database of publicly available antibodies hosted in collaboration with Nature Publishing Group (NPG). catalogues more than 500,000 individual antibodies, which collectively detect 88% of the proteins encoded by the human genome. Antibodypedia also holds the results of nearly 145,000 experiments performed with these antibodies, as well as 32,000 links to publications related to their use.
Antibodypedia is a free, open-access, and growing resource for data and commentary on antibodies from both commercial and academic providers. The database’s antigen-centric structure allows users to compare the properties of a range of antibodies detecting a particular target. Antibodies are ranked according to their spectrum of efficacy, with peer-reviewed user data contributing to their rankings such that the scoring system recapitulates the community’s preferences.
