Tony Pawson was renowned for his collaborative spirit and his passion for understanding the protein:protein interactions that mapped out how cells communicate signals and interpret these signals into appropriate responses. Over his career, Tony published over 400 scientific manuscripts. Gary Bader (, bioinformatician extraordinaire at the Donnelly Centre, was one of Tony's long time colleagues and also a key author of software used to visualize complex interactions. We asked Gary to build interactomes of Tony's coauthors. On this page, the four quadrants shown interactomes binned by the number of times an author published with Tony. The maps are interactive and can be zoomed and distorted to trace the contact edges. We know Tony would was particularly proud of the number of people he was able to work with, many of whom are also giants in the fascinating world of intracellular communication.
