The service provides search against a database documenting chemical interactions, molecular molecular structures, and pathways. The Biomolecular Interaction Network Database (BIND) is a curated collection of reports from scientific literature describing molecular interactions in experimental research. Records document interaction data stored in a variety of sources aggregating researcher reports, so the service provides search across those separate repositories.
API methods support submission of a search query specifying a particular source identifier or a text string associated with a result. Methods return all records from the BIND database matching the query along with descriptive data about the result set such as number of results, the query that generated them, and the result type.
