DELFinder: An Efficient Academic Search Engine Dedicated to the DNA-Encoded Library Literature!
DELFinder is developed to provide an efficient and convenient retrieval tool to assist global researchers in new drug discovery in finding literature and information related to DNA-Encoded Library technology.
DNA-encoded library (DEL) technology has emerged as an efficient and cost-effective small molecular discovery tool in the drug development field. To meet the growing research needs of the biomedical researchers, our DELopen team has therefore developed an academic search engine dedicated to the DEL field-DELFinder. DELFinder contains all published DNA-Encoded Library Technology related papers, patents, books, theses, conference papers, news, clinical trial reports, etc.
DELFinder has been registered and used by more than four hundred researchers worldwide in the four months after its launch. We have received a lot of valuable feedback, which has helped us greatly in optimizing our platform. With the concerted effort of the DELopen team, the newly revamped DELFinder 2.0 is now online! https://delopen.org/scripts/_
In DELFinder 2.0, in addition to the article information, the relevant DEL Library, DEL Hit and DNA Compatible Chemistry of the literature are also clearly displayed on the retrieved pages, with concise icons to assist the users to efficiently understand the article. No login required! No need to read the long article. Users could easily grasp the key information of each literature, greatly reducing the searching time. Besides, the recommendation index in DELFinder 2.0 facilitates the screening of the cut-edge and high quality DEL researches.

In addition to DELFinder 2.0, DELopen team has also developed three other DEL information search engines– DEL HitFinder，DEL LibFinder and DEL ChemFinder. Using the three engines, researchers can find the required DEL information in a fast and convenient way, such as published Hits and Leads, as well as the information on the DNA compatible chemical reactions and published DNA-encoded libraries. Visitors can browse the first page and see all the information after logging in.

DEL ChemFinder contains all published DNA Compatible Chemical Reaction and lists reaction names, schemes, conditions, usage and the page number as they appear in the literature. The link to the original article is provided.
DEL LibFinder contains all published DNA-Encoded Libraries and lists the general formulas, hits for target, Building Blocks and DNA tags used in each cycles. The link to the original article is provided.
DELFinder is developed to provide an efficient and convenient retrieval tool to assist global researchers in new drug discovery in finding literature and information related to DNA-Encoded Library technology. To achieve our goal “every drug can be made and every disease can be treated”.
