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. Encouraging the adoption of the JAMI software library.
  2. Supporting the development of formats for causal reasoning (CausalTAB)
  3. Update of the PSICQUIC service
  4. Coordination of systematic curation/prediction of human interactome
  5. Enhancement of the description of meta-data associated with interaction evidences
