Summary: The MiMI molecular interaction repository integrates data from multiple sources, resolves interactions to standard gene names and symbols, links to annotation data from GO, MeSH and PubMed and normalizes the descriptions of interaction type. Here, we describe a Cytoscape plugin that retrieves interaction and annotation data from MiMI and links out to multiple data sources and tools. Community annotation of the interactome is supported.

Availability: MiMI plugin v3.0.1 can be installed from within Cytoscape 2.6 using the Cytoscape plugin manager in ‘Network and Attribute I/0’ category. The plugin is also preloaded when Cytoscape is launched using Java WebStart at by querying a gene and clicking ‘View in MiMI Plugin for Cytoscape’ link.
