The interact package provide an implementation of INtERAcT (Interaction networks from vector representation of words) together with a selection of different metrics. Additionally, it exposes various utilities parse data from STRING DB, UniProt and files in gmt format.

INtERAcT is also available as a service on IBM Cloud. For details check the paper.


Setup of the virtual environment

We strongly recommend to work inside a virtual environment (venv).

Create the environment:

python3 -m venv venv

Activate it:

source venv/bin/activate

Install dependencies

pip3 install -r requirements.txt

Module installation

The module can be installed either in editable mode:

pip3 install -e .

Or as a normal package:

pip3 install .

Check the folder examples for a quick start on inferring interaction from an embedding using interact.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
