Brazilian database of natural products receives international recognition

111By José Tadeu Arantes

Agência FAPESP – Two important international organizations recently attested to the quality of the NuBBE Database, which is a landmark database of the isolated natural products from Brazil’s biodiversity and includes information on the potential of these secondary metabolites for use in medicinal chemistry, ecological chemistry, and metabolomics.

The first recognition of this resource was from the publication of the article “Development of a Natural Products Database from the Biodiversity of Brazil” in the Journal of Natural Products, which penned a piece on the NuBBE Database. Coedited by the American Society of Pharmacognosy and the American Chemical Society, this periodical is considered one of the best in the world in the area of natural products chemistry.
