Submit your interaction data the IMEx way: a step by step guide to trouble-free deposition.

Author information

European Bioinformatics Institute, Hinxton, Cambridge, UK.


The ever-increasing generation of, and corresponding interest in, molecular interaction data has lead to the establishment of a number of high-quality molecular interaction databases which manually curate interaction data extracted from the literature. In order to effectively share the curation load, and ensure that data is stored in and accessible from multiple sources, these databases have united to form the IMEx consortium. All of the IMEx databases also accept direct deposition of interaction data from authors prior to publication, thus both assisting the scientist in preparing the dataset for publication and ensuring that its subsequent representation in the public domain databases is fully accurate. This article walks the potential submitter through the various routes by which data may be deposited with the databases and describes the tools which have been developed to assist in this process.
