Welcome to the FSBI-DB. The Food Systems Biology Database (FSBI-DB) is a database integrating information about flavor-active molecules, their occurrence in food and their associated chemosensory receptors. The database is intended to support research and development in the food chemistry, molecular biology, neuroscience, sensory evaluation, chemometrics as well as computational pharmacology and to provide information required for the application of systems biology approaches on food.

FSBI-DB is developed by a team of scientists from the Leibniz Institute for Food Systems Biology at the Technical University of Munich.
The platform is offered to the public as an open and freely available resource. Use and re-distribution of the data, in whole or in part, for commercial purposes requires explicit permission of the authors and explicit acknowledgement of the source material (FSBI-DB) and the original citation.
