BIND represented one of the largest curated databases of biomolecular interactions. At the end of the project, it contained more than 200 000 interactions obtained from 77 journals and 23 376 publications. In addition, the project led to the development of several interaction prediction algorithms: the SMID-Genomes, which predicts small molecule interactions with genomic information, and Armadillo, which predicts the location of protein linkages. Furthermore, BIND’s interface and new software protocols have been implemented by other major databases including SGD and Flybase. It is anticipated that numerous research programs have benefited from the database because the biomolecular interactions contained within the BIND database are the basis of all cellular activities.
After the project ended in August 2005, the IP for BIND was secured by Unleashed Informatics. In March 2007, Unleashed Informatics was acquired by Thomson Corporation.
