BioGRID

Biological General Repository for Interaction Datasets

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 over 1,500,000 interactions curated from both high-throughput datasets and individual focused studies, as derived from over 63,000 publications in the primary literature. Complete coverage of the entire literature is maintained for budding yeast (S. cerevisiae), fission yeast (S. pombe) and thale cress (A. thaliana), and efforts to expand curation across multiple metazoan species are underway. 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 web interface contains new search and display features that enable rapid queries across multiple data types and sources. BioGRID provides interaction data to several model organism databases, resources such as Entrez-Gene, SGD, TAIR, FlyBase and other interaction meta-databases. The entire BioGRID data collection may be downloaded in multiple file formats, including IMEx compatible PSI MI XML.
