We are working in a major upgrade for TDR Targets. You may keep using the old version of TDR Targets at old.tdrtargets.org until further notice, but we encourage you to play around with this new version.

TDR Targets 6.0

The TDR Targets project seeks to exploit the availability of diverse datasets to facilitate the identification and prioritization of drugs and drug targets in neglected disease pathogens.

This database functions both as a website where researchers can look for information on targets of interest, and as a tool for prioritization of targets in whole genomes. Using the TDRtargets database as a tool, researchers can quickly prioritize genes of interest by running simple queries (such as looking for small enzymes, or proteins with high quality structural models), assigning numerical weights to each query (in the history page), and combining these results to produce a ranked list of candidate targets. The name of the database includes the initialism 'TDR' for Tropical Disease Research, a special programme within the World Health Organization.
