MitoMiner Updated! - September 2017

We have updated all the data sources that make up MitoMiner. Further details can be found here:


The biggest changes are:


IMPI - Integrated Mitochondrial Protein Index - Q3 2017

IMPI has had a major update - it uses more data and uses a different machine learning method (SVMs).  The final list contains 1550 genes in human (1130 known and 420 predicted). To make MitoMiner easier to use each mammalian gene is now in one of the following categories (found in the summary header):

Known mitochondrial

Predicted mitochondrial

Predicted NOT mitochondrial

Known NOT mitochondrial

Probable contaminant

Dubious gene (pseudogenes, read-throughs etc.)


Mitochondrial diseases

We have also added a new mitochondrial disease section that provides additional information and links to the mitochondrial disorders pages at the Washington University Neuromuscular Disease Center


New localisation datasets

We have also added four new localisation studies, three of which include sublocation information (Matrix, IMS etc.):

Human Protein Atlas RNA tissue levels

RNA tissue levels from the Human Protein Atlas are now included in addition to the tissue antibody data



The interaction networks have been retired due to lack of use and maintenance difficulties. If you use this data please get in touch.
