It's seems nice product, depending on your needs. However, you should ask
them about the database. If their database is based only on yeast two -
hybrid analysis it could include not accurate data.  I heard about several 
companies and academic research groups that have similar databases.

>Hi All:
>I have come across a company that is offering a product that automatically

>post-translational modifications, pathway data from large datasets like
>published literature (Over 11 Million abstracts). Their claim is that with
>their tool you can quickly find:
>· Find all interacting proteins from literature  and literature and online
>· Extract the exact type of interaction
>· Visualize the interaction using our Interaction Viewer
>· Move seamlessly between interaction data and abstracts containing them
>· Build network of proteins using our Pathway Builder
>· Gather contextual  information related to the interactions,
>i.e. Cellular location, Experimental conditions etc.
>Question: Is this and attractive offer that has some novelty?
>Would appreciate the feedback.
