The compound management database contains information on drug and drug-like small molecules, and their genomic and chemical interfaces.

External funding to EBI declined in 2009, not including funding for the ELIXR consortium, but was offset somewhat by an increase in funding from EBI's parent, the European Molecular Biology Laboratory.

The new open access genomics-based small molecule database is hosted by the European Bioinformatics Institute.
