INTERACT: An Object Oriented Protein-Protein Interaction Database

Karen Eilbeck, Andy Brass, Norman Paton, and Charlie Hodgman

Motivation: Protein-protein interactions provide vital information concerning the function of proteins, complexes and networks. Currently there is no widely accepted repository of this interaction information. Our aim is to provide a single database with the necessary architecture to fully store, query and analyse interaction data.

Results: An object oriented database has been created which provides scientists with a resource for examining existing protein-protein interactions and inferring possible interactions from the data stored. It also provides a basis for examining networks of interacting proteins, via analysis of the data stored. The database contains over a thousand interactions. Contact: k.eilbeck@stud.man.ac.uk
