ready Antimicrobial Peptide Database


General Information
The Antimicrobial Peptide Database (APD) contains information on antimicrobial peptides from across a wide taxonomic range. It includes a glossary, nomenclature, classification, information search, prediction, design, and statistics of AMPs. The antimicrobial peptides in this database contain less than 100 amino acid residues, are in the mature and active form, and primarily from natural sources, ranging from bacteria, fungi, plants, to animals.
