About IM Browser
IM Browser is a web-based application designed to explore and visualize interaction data stored in an Oracle database. The tool connects to a database specified by the user; when using the IM Browser from this web site, the user is connected to DroID, the Drosophila Interactions Database. IM Browser generates a graphical user interface that is simple and convenient enough to query the data without knowledge of SQL, yet powerful enough to provide access to all features of complex interaction data. Results of the queries are displayed as an interactive graph.
The reference for this program is: A database and tool, IM Browser, for exploring and integrating emerging gene and protein interaction data for Drosophila.

IM Browser was implemented as an applet. To work with the applet your Web Browser needs Java 1.5 or higher and must allow applets. To check your version of Java and whether your Browser allows applets, please click here.
