virus mentha archives evidence about viral interactions collected from different sources and presents these data in a complete and comprehensive way. Its data comes from manually curated protein-protein interaction databases that have adhered to the IMEx consortium. virus mentha is a resource that offers a series of tools to analyse selected proteins in the context of a network of interactions. Protein interaction databases archive protein-protein interaction (PPI) information from published articles. However, no database alone has sufficient literature coverage to offer a complete resource to investigate "the interactome".
virus mentha's approach generates every week a consistent interactome (graph). Most importantly, the procedure assigns to each interaction a reliability score that takes into account all the supporting evidence. virus mentha offers direct access to viral families such as: Orthomyxoviridae, Orthoretrovirinae and Herpesviridae plus, it offers the unique possibility of searching by host organism. The website and the graphical application are designed to make the data stored in virus mentha accessible and analysable to all users.virus mentha superseeds VirusMINT. The Source databases are: MINT, DIP, IntAct, MatrixDB, BioGRID.
Thank you for your interest in VirusMINT http://mint.bio.uniroma2.it/virusmint/Welcome.do. Unfortunately MINT related websites are not all available at the moment. MINT is currently undergoing a series of updates, sorry for the inconvenience.
We have developed a similar resource to browse interactions, viral interactions included.
A beta version of virus mentha can be found at virus mentha. virus mentha is active partner of the International Molcular Exchange Consortium (IMEx).
