PubChem Announcements



September 19, 2016
PubChem Widgets 2.0f is released. PubChem Widgets enable scientific web developers to display PubChem content within webpages they design. All data comes directly from PubChem and, therefore, obviates the need to mirror that content. This makes it easier to harness the vast scientific knowledge within PubChem on your own webpage, such as summaries of patents, bioactivities and PubMed articles linked to a PubChem record. PubChem Widgets 2.0f substantially updates all table-based widgets and classification widgets, while adding new capabilities and features. For more information, please read this post.

PubChem, as a part of NCBI, will adopt the same HTTPS-only policy. To read more about this, see the PubChem Blog.
