[show abstract][hide abstract] ABSTRACT: The Biological General Repository for Interaction Datasets (BioGRID: http//thebiogrid.org) is an open access archive of genetic and protein interactions that are curated from the primary biomedical literature for all major model organism species. As of September 2012, BioGRID houses more than 500 000 manually annotated interactions from more than 30 model organisms. BioGRID maintains complete curation coverage of the literature for the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe and the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana. A number of themed curation projects in areas of biomedical importance are also supported. BioGRID has established collaborations and/or shares data records for the annotation of interactions and phenotypes with most major model organism databases, including Saccharomyces Genome Database, PomBase, WormBase, FlyBase and The Arabidopsis Information Resource. BioGRID also actively engages with the text-mining community to benchmark and deploy automated tools to expedite curation workflows. BioGRID data are freely accessible through both a user-defined interactive interface and in batch downloads in a wide variety of formats, including PSI-MI2.5 and tab-delimited files. BioGRID records can also be interrogated and analyzed with a series of new bioinformatics tools, which include a post-translational modification viewer, a graphical viewer, a REST service and a Cytoscape plugin.

[show abstract][hide abstract] ABSTRACT: 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 (http://www.thebiogrid.org). 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.

[show abstract][hide abstract] ABSTRACT: The goal of the Biological General Repository for Interaction Datasets (BioGRID) (http://www.thebiogrid.org) is to archive and freely disseminate collections of genetic and protein interactions from major model organisms. BioGRID currently houses over 335,000 interactions curated from high-throughput datasets and individual focused studies found in the primary literature, as derived from some 23,000 publications. Complete coverage of the entire literature for both the budding yeast _Saccharomyces cerevisiae_ and the fission yeast _Schizosaccharomyces pombe_ has been achieved, resulting in the curation of over 246,000 interactions, and efforts to expand curation across multiple species are underway. Through collaborations with the Gene Ontology (GO) Consortium and the Linking Animal Models to Human Disease Initiative (LAMHDI), we are focusing our curation efforts across model organisms 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. A dedicated Interaction Management System (IMS) is used to track all curation and to prioritize publications across multiple curation projects. BioGRID data are incorporated in several model organism databases and other biological databases. The entire BioGRID interaction collection may be downloaded in multiple file formats, including PSI MI XML, and source code for BioGRID is freely available without any restrictions. This work is supported by NIH NCRR grant R01 RR024031 to MT and KD, and by grants from the CIHR and BBSRC to MT.
