STRING 8.2 and STITCH 2.0 released

We have released new versions of STRING and STITCH!

Here are some of the changes:

  • protein-protein actions like binding or post-translational modifications are now included
  • most download files are now under Creative Commons licenses, so academics usually don't need to fill license agreements anymore
  • bugfix: version 8.1 had accidentally omitted homology transfer in the textmining channel, this is now fixed.
  • the Flash interactive network viewer has further matured; a simple, lean version is now enabled by default. The full-featured version can be activated by clicking on the "advanced" button below the network
  • STITCH 2 uses the protein universe of STRING 8
  • the number of interactions has further increased


  1. Hi!
    I would like to know whether there is an official bug-report application for string.
    I have found many errors in your database and would like to report them, but I need to provide a link to a bug entry to justify the time spent writing the report.
    Moreover, you don't even have a contact page or email in string's home page... it is very difficult to come in contact with you :)

  2. Hello,

    a quick question: is there a way to link directly to a page containing your incredible graphs for a given gene?

    I've been looking at your Developer API, but there isn't anything that allows me to do that if I'm not mistaken.


  3. In case your query is not to complicated, this will work:

    We are currently working on more complex permanent links.
