This year was special for QsarDB for at least two reasons. The first one is certainly an article in Journal Chemosphere that linked a QSAR model to the repository with a unique persistent digital identifier (HDL). The second was a funding from the EU Regional Development Fund, which significantly boosted activities over the next three years.
