MINT has signed the IMEx agreement to share curation efforts and supports the Protein Standard Initiative (PSI) recommendation.
Starting September 2013, MINT uses the IntAct database infrastructure to limit the duplication of efforts and to optimise future software development. Data maintenance and release, MINT PSICQUIC and IMEx services are under the responsibility of the IntAct team, while curation effort will be carried by both groups. Data manually curated by the MINT curators can now also be accessed from the IntAct homepage at the EBI.

IMEx accession numbers suitable for inclusion in a publication will normally be issued within five working days after receipt of all necessary data.

Minimum Data Requirements:
IMEx partner databases request the following minimum information about a molecular interaction experiment to be provided with each data deposition. Data should be MIMIx compatible. Submitters should supply the following information.

Data Submission by e-mail:
We accept submissions in free text format, for example a manuscript prepared for submission. Please, Contact us by e-mail to inform us about your data and we will help you with data preparation and submission.
