MiSink is a plugin for Cytoscape that converts Cytoscape into an interactive, graphical interface to [DIP](http://dip.doe-mbi.ucla.edu/dip/Main.cgi) and, potentially other, other MiSink-enabled Web sites. This is possible, from the end-user perspective, by implementing, within MiSink, three additional operations:
* adding to the current Cytoscape network nodes and edges 'advertised' by a Web site through and icons.
* visiting sites that provide annotation of the imported nodes/edges
* finding information about the neighbouring nodes
In addition, MiSink can be used to import into Cytoscape data from tab-delimited or XML files. Data in practically arbitrary format can be imported thanks to strightforward configuration based on simple, yet powerful, XPath language.
