This database contains expertly curated molecular and biological information on genes proven to affect the outcome of pathogen-host interactions. Information is also given on the target sites of some anti-infective chemistries.

Errors


Missing entries

Currently only papers are included, where the affected genes are characterised on the molecular level. For successful parsing, all nominated papers need to have a valid protein ID assigned by either EMBL, Genbank (NCBI) or UniProtKB. Only in exceptional cases the molecular information is entered manually. A further requirement for inclusion of a gene into PHI-base is that a mutant organism is tested on a host.

Additional missing publication entries on any pathogenic species can be logged either by an author or another scientist to our PHIbase help-desk email address. Note: Our coverage of the pathogen effector literature is currently less advanced because we are developing an online curation portal for authors in order to capture additional information from each publication.
