dc.description.abstractPhytoResp is a digital, manually curated database developed at the Department of Botany, University of North Bengal (NBU). The database has been created with the help of 200 published research articles and the eleven volumes of ‘Chiranjib Banousadhi’ series, written by Shibakali Bhattacharya. Here, we provide the names of 329 medicinal plants that are available in the Darjeeling district region of North Bengal and are traditionally used in the treatment of respiratory diseases. The list of reported plants is included, along with their parts used. They are known to cure 38 respiratory diseases. Among these, 113 plants have already been reported as a cure for COVID-19 (in silico or in vivo). Also, we have taken a step to evaluate the efficiency of the phytocompounds through in-silico methods.en_US
