The "Karlsruhe Astrophysical Database of Nucleosynthesis in Stars" (KADoNiS) project is an online database for experimental cross sections relevant to the s process and p process. It is available under and consists of two parts. Part 1 is an updated sequel to the well-known Bao et al. compilations from 1987 and 2000, which is online since April 2005. An extension of this s-process database to (n, p) and (n,α) cross sections at kT= 30 keV, as in the first version of the Bao compilation, is planned. The second part of KADoNiS is a p-process library, which includes all available experimental data from (p,γ ), (p,n), (αγ ), (αn), (α α), (n, α) and (γ ,n) reactions in or close to the respective Gamow window. Despite the great number of reactions required for a p-process reaction network, experimental data is still scarce and up to now restricted to stable targets. Given here is a short overview about the present status of the KADoNiS database.
