Three interaction datasets are presented: a 'core' set of high quality protein-protein interactions (PPI) derived from an ongoing series of TAP-TAG pulldown experiments; an 'Extended' set of interactions which includes the core set, but also includes an additional set of PPI's deemed to be of slightly lower uqality to the core set; and a set of predicted functional linkages, derived through a theoretical integration of various functional genomic datasets. See the help pages for more details on the construction of the various datasets.
|Total number of proteins||Number of identified interactions||Average number of interactions per protein|
|core - experimental||918||3888||4.24|
|extended - experimental||2291||7220||2.49|
|functional - theoretical||1941||3989||2.06|
The Bacteriome resource provides access to two sets of protein complex predictions - one for the functional interaction dataset and one for the core dataset. Note for the functional interaction dataset, the complexes may be thought of as 'functional modules'.
|Number of protein complexes||Total number of proteins||Maximum complex size||Minimum complex size||Medium complex size||Average complex size|
|core - experimental||68||967||98||3||6||14.22|
|functional - theoretical||279||1370||30||3||4||4.91|
In addition to the interactions and complexes, the Bacteriome resource integrates a variety of additional "Metadata" which is used to provide additional detail on selected genes and aid in the visualization of the networks. Some examples of these datasets are provided below:
