CNKB Michael Honig (mhonig<at> ~400k interactions
The Cellular Network Knowledge Base maintains the B-Cell Interactome and stores protein-protein and protein-dna interactions from several public databases. It stores sequence info, interaction type, GO annotation, cellular and molecular phenotype context for the interaction, algorithm or experimental procedure for inferring the interaction, and homology relationships across multiple species. Available for querying via geWorkbench plugin and visualizing interactions in geWorkbench Cytoscape module.

B-cell Interactome (66,193 interactions)
HPRD (6,575 interactions)
Reactome (63,801 interactions)
Geneways (45,317 interactions)

~ 18,000 genes ADOMETA stands for ADoption of Orphan METabolic Activities. It is a bioinformatics resource designed to predict genes for orphan metabolic activities, which are known biochemical activities not currently assigned to genes in some or all organisms. ADOMETA returns a ranked list of genes likely to catalyze a given metabolic activity in a selected organism. ADOMETA ADOMETA Details
HMAP Kely Norel (rn98<at> ~ 29,000 templates HMAP is a method for hybrid multidimensional alignment of profiles which combines sequence, secondary and tertiary information in protein structures into profiles to facilitate the detection of remote homologs and perform sequence-to-sequence alignments. The database for HMAP contains approximately 13,000 templates, which are 90% sequence non-redundant. /ifs/data/c2b2/bh_lab/shares/databases/hmap/1dprof HMAP Details
SCOP Kely Norel (rn98<at> 105,725 PDB entries The SCOP database provides a detailed and comprehensive description of all known protein structures. The classification is on hierarchical levels: the first two levels, family and superfamily, describe near and far evolutionary relationships; the third, fold, describes geometrical relationships.
