MetaComBio (Meta Compound Bioactivity) is a website containing links to chemical databases describing compounds with low molecular weight, interesting from the point of view of food and nutrition science, chemistry, biochemistry, pharmacology, toxicology, metabolomics or chemical education. Database contains also links to general databases of chemical compounds, biological metabases (databases providing access to other databases) and programs facilitating searching for compounds of interest. Databases and programs linked at MetaComBio are free-accessible and do not require registration or download and installation at user’s computer. We would like to encourage the users to send any remarks concerning website as well as suggestions to place here more databases annotating the information about biologically active chemical compounds.
