OncoPPi web portal launched for protein-protein interaction research community
The OncoPPi Portal (http://oncoppi.emory.edu) is an interactive web resource that allows users to access and explore cancer-focused protein-protein interactions that were experimentally identified in cancer cell lines. This resource combines network connectivity analysis, mutual exclusivity analysis of genomic alterations, cellular co-localization of interacting proteins, and domain-domain interactions. Estimates of PPI essentiality allow users to evaluate the functional impact of PPI disruption on cancer cell proliferation. Furthermore, connecting the OncoPPi network with the approved drugs and compounds in clinical trials enables discovery of new tumor dependencies to inform strategies to interrogate undruggable targets like tumor suppressors. The OncoPPi Portal serves as a resource for the cancer research community to facilitate discovery of cancer targets and therapeutic development. Click here to read full publication.
