HUPO Proteomics Standards Initiative Protein Interaction Specification Documentation
Introduction to MIABE
The work on MIABE was initiated as part of the EMBL-EBI Industry Programme and carried out by EMBL-EBI and the PSI-MI work group. The Proteomics Standards Initiative (PSI) aims to define community standards for data representation in proteomics to facilitate data comparison, exchange and verification.
MIMIx is a community guideline advising the user on how to fully describe a molecular interaction experiment and which information it is important to capture. The document is designed as a compromise between the necessary depth of information to describe all relevant aspects of the interaction experiment, and the reporting burden placed on the scientist generating the data. The MIMIx draft guidelines attached below, has later been published by Nature Biotechnology, Nat Biotechnol. 2007 Aug;25(8):894-8.
