This website allows you to estimate the most probable macromolecular targets of a small molecule, assumed as bioactive. The prediction is founded on a combination of 2D and 3D similarity with a library of 370'000 known actives on more than 3000 proteins from three different species.

The webtool is described in detail here: SwissTargetPrediction: updated data and new features for efficient prediction of protein targets of small molecules, Nucl. Acids Res. (2019). For technical information about the prediction algorithm, you can refer to: Shaping the interaction landscape of bioactive molecules, Bioinformatics (2013) 29:3073-3079.

Due to an exceptionally large number of long calculations, the SwissTargetPrediction service was facing problems.
Some jobs submitted on May 10 and on May 11 have been lost.
Please, remind that SwissTargetPrediction estimate targets of druglike molecules, but NOT of large peptides.
As well, this service is provided to treat one molecule at a time. Any abuse prevents other users getting their results.
Thanks for your help and understanding.
