Biomolecular Object Network Databank

BOND, which requires registration of a free account, is a resource used to perform cross-database searches of available sequence, interaction, complex and pathway information. BOND integrates a range of component databases including GenBank and BIND, the Biomolecular Interaction Network Database. BOND contains 70+ million biological sequences, 33,000 structures, 38,000 GO terms, and over 200,000 human curated interactions contained in BIND, and is open access. BOND serves the interests of the developing global interactome effort encompassing the genomic, proteomic and metabolomic research communities. BOND is the first open access search resource to integrate sequence and interaction information. BOND integrates BLAST functionality, and contains a well-documented API. BOND also stores annotation links for sequences, including links to Genome Ontology descriptions, MedLine abstracts, taxon identifiers, associated structures, redundant sequences, sequence neighbors, conserved domains, data base cross-references, Online Mendalian Inheritance in Man identifiers, LocusLink identifiers and complete genomes. BIND on BOND The Biomolecular Interaction Network Database (BIND), a component database of BOND, is a collection of records documenting molecular interactions. The contents of BIND include high-throughput data submissions and hand-curated information gathered from the scientific literature. BIND is an interaction database with three classifications for molecular associations: molecules that associate with each other to form interactions, molecular complexes that are formed from one or more interaction(s) and pathways that are defined by a specific sequence of two or more interactions.Interactions A BIND record represents an interaction between two or more objects that is believed to occur in a living organism. A biological object can be a protein, DNA, RNA, ligand, molecular complex, gene, photon or an unclassified biological entity. BIND records are created for interactions which have been shown experimentally and published in at least one peer-reviewed journal. A record also references any papers with experimental evidence that support or dispute the associated interaction. Interactions are the basic units of BIND and can be linked together to form molecular complexes or pathways. The BIND interaction viewer is a tool to visualize and analyze molecular interactions, complexes and pathways. The BIND interaction viewer uses Ontoglyphs to display information about a protein via attributes such as molecular function, biological process and sub-cellular localization. Ontoglyphs allow to graphically and interactively explore interaction networks, by visualizing interactions in the context of 34 functional, 25 binding specificity and 24 sub-cellular localization Ontoglyphs categories. We will continue to provide an open access version of BOND, providing its subscribers with free, unlimited access to a core content set. But we are confident you will soon want to upgrade to BONDplus.
