Distributed Annotation System for Molecular Interactions (DASMI)
Welcome to DASMI, a new approach for retrieving, sharing, and qualitatively assessing molecular interaction data.
DASMI is based on the decentralized client-server architecture of the Distributed Annotation System (DAS) and consists of a data exchange specification, interaction data servers, and visualization clients.
DASMIweb is a web service for the dynamic retrieval, integration, and assessment of protein and domain interactions.

Feb 2009: PSICQUIC support and new data sources
DASMIweb now supports the PSICQUIC data retrieval standard, which is currently been developed by the HUPO-PSI. The standard is not yet published, but prototypic PSICQUIC data sources are already available for BioGRID, the Molecular Interactions Database (MINT), and the Microbial Protein Interaction Database (MPIDB).
Jan 2009: Yet more documentation
A new tutorial is available, which describes how to incorporate interactions from a PSI-MI2.5 XML file into DASMIweb.
Dec 2008: More documentation
The DASMI documentation has been extended with a tutorial that explains step-by-step how to use DASMIweb.
Dec 2008: New data sources
New DASMI interaction data sources are available for the Database of Interacting Proteins (DIP) and the Molecular Interactions Database (MINT).
