Building Protein-Protein Interaction Networks with Proteomic and Informatics Tools
News Jun 20, 2011
The systematic characterization of the whole interactomes of different model organisms has revealed that the eukaryotic proteome is highly interconnected. Therefore, biological research is progressively shifting away from classical approaches which focus only on a few proteins towards whole protein interaction networks to describe the relationship of proteins in biological processes. In this mini-review, we survey the most common methods for the systematic identification of protein interactions, and exemplify different strategies for the generation of protein interaction networks.

With cybersecurity one of the nation's top security concerns and billions of people affected by breaches last year, government and businesses are spending more time and money defending against it. Researchers at the Army's corporate research laboratory, in collaboration with Towson University, may have identified a new way to improve network security.
