The current network pharmacology study encountered a bottleneck with a lot of public data scattered in different databases. There is a lack of an open-access and consolidated platform that integrates this information for systemic research. To address this issue, we have developed PhID, an integrated pharmacology database which integrates >400 000 pharmacology elements (drug, target, disease, gene, side-effect, and pathway) and >200 000 element interactions in branches of public databases. PhID has three major applications: (1) assisting scientists searching through the overwhelming amount of pharmacology element interaction data by names, public IDs, molecule structures, or molecular substructures; (2) helping visualizing pharmacology elements and their interactions with a web-based network graph; and (3) providing prediction of drug–target interactions through two modules: PreDPI-ki and FIM, by which users can predict drug–target interactions of PhID entities or some drug–target pairs of their own interest. To get a systems-level understanding of drug action and disease complexity, PhID as a network pharmacology tool was established from the perspective of data layer, visualization layer, and prediction model layer to present information untapped by current databases.
