The BioGRID Interaction Database: 2011 update.

Nucleic acids research | Jan 23, 2011

The Biological General Repository for Interaction Datasets (BioGRID) is a public database that archives and disseminates genetic and protein interaction data from model organisms and humans ( BioGRID currently holds 347,966 interactions (170,162 genetic, 177,804 protein) curated from both high-throughput data sets and individual focused studies, as derived from over 23,000 publications in the primary literature. Complete coverage of the entire literature is maintained for budding yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae), fission yeast (Schizosaccharomyces pombe) and thale cress (Arabidopsis thaliana), and efforts to expand curation across multiple metazoan species are underway. The BioGRID houses 48,831 human protein interactions that have been curated from 10,247 publications. Current curation drives are focused on particular areas of biology to enable insights into conserved networks and pathways that are relevant to human health. The BioGRID 3.0 web interface contains new search and display features that enable rapid queries across multiple data types and sources. An automated Interaction Management System (IMS) is used to prioritize, coordinate and track curation across international sites and projects. BioGRID provides interaction data to several model organism databases, resources such as Entrez-Gene and other interaction meta-databases. The entire BioGRID 3.0 data collection may be downloaded in multiple file formats, including PSI MI XML. Source code for BioGRID 3.0 is freely available without any restrictions.

This is a list of tools and resources that we have found mentioned in this publication.


Data management software that runs the Pathway Commons web service. It makes it easy to aggregate custom pathway data sets available in standard exchange formats from multiple databases, present pathway data to biologists via a customizable web interface, and export pathway data via a web service to third-party software, such as Cytoscape, for visualization and analysis. cPath is software only, and does not include new pathway information. Main features: * Import pipeline capable of aggregating pathway and interaction data sets from multiple sources, including: MINT, IntAct, HPRD, DIP, BioCyc, KEGG, PUMA2 and Reactome. * Import/Export support for the Proteomics Standards Initiative Molecular Interaction (PSI-MI) and the Biological Pathways Exchange (BioPAX) XML formats. * Data visualization and analysis via Cytoscape. * Simple HTTP URL based XML web service. * Complete software is freely available for local install. Easy to install and administer. * Partly funded by the U.S. National Cancer Institute, via the Cancer Biomedical Informatics Grid (caBIG) and aims to meet silver-level requirements for software interoperability and data exchange.
