Why does Mcule appear in my server logs and what is Mculebot?
Mcule.com is the online drug discovery platform. It offers a unique solution for pharma and biotech companies by providing molecular modeling tools and the highest quality purchasable compound database.
The Mcule database contains over 30 million unique structures and 10 million purchasable products. To keep our database as up-to-date as possible we have developed batch and live handlers that can automatically update stock availability information for millions of products per day. This makes the Mcule database the most up-to-date database of screening compounds currently available.
In some cases we need to automatically get stock availability information from websites of compound suppliers. Mculebot is Mcule's web crawling bot that is responsible to get this information.
If you are a compound supplier and you can provide us daily or at least weekly stock availability information for your compounds as a text file, we would probably not crawl your site at all. If you see any chance to regularly generate such data files for us, please let us know.
If you have any questions or concerns please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org
