 2.Description and objectives 

Focus and Purpose 

The PSI-MI working group is composed of academic, government, and industry researchers, software developers and database curators and managers. The main goals of the PSI-MI working group are to:

  • define community data formats and associated controlled vocabulary terms, facilitating data exchange and archiving of molecular interaction data.Maintain data formats for the exchange of molecular interaction data, updating these when necessary in response to new data types

  • Maintain the minimum information guidelines (MIMIx) for the exchange of molecular interaction data, updating these when necessary in response to new data types

  • Maintain the PSI-MI controlled vocabularies updating these when necessary in response to new  use cases

  • Maintain the PSICQUIC webservice

  • Support the work of interaction databases in making molecular interaction data publicly available 

Current projects of the PSI-MI working group are:

  1. Formal adoption of the recently released PSI-MI XML3.0.

  2. Encouraging the adoption of the JAMI software library.

  3. Supporting the development of formats for causal reasoning (CausalTAB)

 

Goals/Milestones

Goal 1: Release of first implementation of PSI-MI XML3.0 – to include standard experimental data and specialist use case (manually curated complex set). Resulting publication to be written in parallel to submission to PSI editorial process.

Milestone 1: Submission of documents to editorial process and to journal. 

Goal 2. Improvement to documentation describing use of JAMI, preparation of publication describing library and use cases.

Milestone 2: Submission of manuscript to journal.

Goal 3: Completion of CausalTAB format. 

Milestone 3: First release of data in CausalTAB.
