BIND CURATION PUTS DATA INTO BIOINFORMATION CONTEXT.

BIND curation effort builds on earlier experimental work to put data into bioinformatics context.

Following on the efforts of researchers at the University of Toronto, the Hospital for Sick Children, and Affinium Pharmaceuticals to describe an interactome map of conserved and essential E. coli proteins, The Blueprint Initiative has announced that scientists at its Toronto node have curated this data into the freely available, open-source Biomolecular Interaction Network Database (BIND).

The newly curated data is comprised of 435 molecular complexes, first identified by tandem affinity purification or sequential peptide affinity, involving 2262 protein interactions. These interactions include 148 ribosomal complex interactions and 163 degradosomal complex interactions (typically involving chaperonins), systems that are critical to cellular function.
