A search engine in assistance of antimicrobial research. Smart Drug Search is use for the screening of literature related to antimicrobial resistance, microbial virulence and topics alike. The search engine combines state-of-the-art web technologies and frameworks with text mining tools so that literature monitoring is active and efficient, and user experience may be easily customized and refined. It was implemented as a web-based application, being designed as a common three-layered architecture where the bottom layer is responsible for accessing the database, the middle layer supports the main functionalities of the web search engine and the top layer is in charge of providing the end-user interface
