STRING is part of the ELIXIR infrastructure

STRING is a database of known and predicted protein-protein interactions. The interactions include direct (physical) and indirect (functional) associations; they stem from computational prediction, from knowledge transfer between organisms, and from interactions aggregated from other (primary) databases. No cost for this resource, directions on citing use available on the site.

UCSC Genome Browser
