The ABCD (for AntiBodies Chemically Defined) database is a repository of sequenced antibodies, integrating curated information about the antibody and its antigen with cross-links to standardized databases of chemical and protein entities. It is freely available to the academic community, accessible through the ExPASy server (https://web.expasy.org/abcd/). The ABCD database aims at helping to improve reproducibility in academic research by providing a unique, unambiguous identifier associated to each antibody sequence. It also allows to determine rapidly if a sequenced antibody is available for a given antigen.
