User submissions interface for Cognoscente (A). Feedback is provided to the user about their proposed submission. If the submission appears to be redundant with an entry in the knowledgebase, the user receives a warning about the potential redundancy (B). Likewise, users receive a ‘green light’ if the proposed interaction does not already exist (C). In addition to these notifications, the system also retrieves gene information based on the user-supplied gene IDs, and retrieves the entire citation and abstract for the submitted PubMed IDs. These measures are expected to reduce redundancy and errors due in manual submissions.
