A new software called GENPPI  is developed to create protein interaction networks from genomes.
GENPPI creates networks of interactions based on three characteristics: conserved gene neighborhoods, phylogenetic profiles, and gene fusions. This software predicts correct evolutionary relationships among species as evident from the average nucleotide identity analyses performed by the authors .
The working of GENPPI is based on HistoFasta Heuristic algorithm. As compared to STRING, GENPPI provides more accurate results . Authors tested GENPPI on 50 genomes. It created protein interaction networks with an average size of 2200 genes in less than 40 min on a conventional computer.
GENPPI is a platform independent software written in Common Lisp without any further requirements. It is available to download at genppi.facom.ufu.br and on GitHub (https://github.com/santosardr/genppi) as well.

How to run do_dssp command (mkdssp) in Gromacs 2022?
In the latest version of GROMACS (2022) , there are some issues regarding the gmx do_dssp command. Apparently, this command either does not run displaying a fatal error, or if it runs then it does not read any frame from MD simulation files. In this article, we are going to run the same command for GROMACS 2022. (more…)
