StarPepDB is a Neo4j graph database resulting from an integration process by which data from antimicrobial peptide-related databases is cleaned, standardized, and merged so that it can be released into an organized collection. In addition to this outcome, this graph database is embedded in the new software application named StarPep toolbox, which allows querying, filtering, visualizing and analyzing the integrated data taking advance of network representation.
