8. The GRID ( The General Repository of Interaction Datasets )

The GRID (General Repository of Interaction Datasets) is a database of genetic and physical interactions developed in The Tyers Group at the Samuel Lunenfeld Research Institute at Mount Sinai Hospital. It contains interaction data from many sources, including several genome/proteome-wide studies, the MIPS [http://mips.gsf.de/] database, and BIND [http://www.bind.ca].

8.1 Where to find The GRID

The GRID can be found at its home page located at: [http://biodata.mshri.on.ca/grid]. Available at the GRID is a text based search of the stored interactions as well as an online applet version of the Osprey Network Visualization System for visualizing interactions graphically. For more information on The GRID and its interactions, visit The GRID web page.[http://biodata.mshri.on.ca/grid]

8.2 Osprey and The GRID

Osprey uses The GRID as its underlying support database of annotation and interactions. All interaction and annotation data displayed both in the standalone application version of Osprey, and the applet version of Osprey have been derived from the The GRID database. Currently, The GRID maintains its annotation from the Saccharomyces Genome Database [http://genome-www.stanford.edu/Saccharomyces/] and the Gene Ontology Consortium [http://www.geneontology.org/]

For more information on ways of adding interactions from The GRID into Osprey, see sections Add All Selected Vertices Interactions, and section Add All Interactions Contained within Selected Vertices.
