iHOP - "information hyperlinked over proteins" - is a site for comprehensive network of information on genes, gene products, and protein function. In the words of its creator, Robert Hoffmann, iHOP is:

"A gene network for navigating the literature: A network of genes and proteins extends through the scientific literature, touching on phenotypes, pathologies and gene function. We report the development of an information system that provides this network as a natural way of accessing the more than ten million abstracts in PubMed. By using genes and proteins as hyperlinks between sentences and abstracts, we convert the information in PubMed into one navigable resource and bring all the advantages of the internet to scientific literature investigation."
