The Reactome team has released new versions of the Analysis Service, Diagram Viewer, Pathway Browser analysis submission interface, and Search. These services, widgets and tools have been updated following user feedback with two main aims: to make them easier to use and to add extra features.
The Analysis Service now has an option to perform an extended analysis that includes interaction data from IntAct, the EBI database of pairwise protein-protein interactions. Complementing this, the new version of the Diagram Viewer also features the overlay of analysis results when interactors are included.
In addition to the display of interactors from IntAct and PSICQUIC services, a new tool has been added to allow the user to upload and overlay custom interaction data onto diagrams. The tool supports different formats, explained in the in-line user guide. Uploaded data is kept across sessions in the same browser.
The main Search is aware of IntAct interactors, making them fully accessible via Reactome web interface queries. When a searched entity is not part of a Reactome pathway, it can still be found as an interactor of pathway entities based on the IntAct data. The search result will show the interactors with a list of all the curated entities that interact with them.
