RicePPINet - A computational Interactome for Rice

RicePPINet covers 16,895 non-transposable-element (non-TE) related proteins with 708,819 high-confidence interactions (download riceppinet full dataset) at a 71% true positive rate. The power of the network for discovering novel protein interactions is demonstrated by a comparison with other publicly available PPI prediction methods as well as by experimentally determined PPI datasets. Furthermore, global analysis of domain-mediated interactions reveals RicePPINet well reflects PPIs at the domain level. Our studies have demonstrated the efficiency of RicePPINet-based methods in prioritizing candidate genes involved in complex agronomic traits, is approximately 2-11 times better than random prediction. RicePPINet provides an expanded landscape of predicted interactome, which will certainly facilitate genetic dissection of agronomically important traits in rice.
