The data package longevityDrugs contains molecular structures and annotation information of longevity-associated drugs (LADs). An iterative process will be used to assemble, update and curate this data set long-term (Backman et al., 2011; Cao et al., 2008). Most small molecules will be identified by integrating several large-scale community data sources such as data from drug databases (e.g. Drugbank), bioassay databases (e.g. PubChem Bioassay, ChEMBL), literature, drug-related gene expression fingerprints (e.g. LINCS), genetic (e.g. GWAS) and phenotype resources. This will also include nearest neighbors of LADs sharing with them structural, physicochemical or biological properties.
