COVID-KOP: Integrating Emerging COVID-19 Data with the ROBOKOP Database

18 June 2020, Version 1
This content is a preprint and has not undergone peer review at the time of posting.


In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we established COVID-KOP, a new knowledgebase integrating the existing ROBOKOP biomedical knowledge graph with information from recent biomedical literature on COVID-19 annotated in the CORD-19 collection. COVID-KOP can be used effectively to test new hypotheses concerning repurposing of known drugs and clinical drug candidates against COVID-19. COVID-KOP is freely accessible at For code and instructions for the original ROBOKOP, see:
