The Illuminating the Druggable Genome (IDG) consortium is a National Institutes of Health (NIH) Common Fund program designed to enhance our knowledge of under-studied proteins, more specifically, proteins unannotated within the three most commonly drug-targeted protein families: G-protein coupled receptors, ion channels, and protein kinases. Since 2014, the IDG Knowledge Management Center (IDG-KMC) has generated several open-access datasets and resources that jointly serve as a highly translational machine-learning-ready knowledgebase focused on human protein-coding genes and their products. The goal of the IDG-KMC is to develop comprehensive integrated knowledge for the druggable genome to illuminate the uncharacterized or poorly annotated portion of the druggable genome. The tools derived from the IDG-KMC provide either user-friendly visualizations or ways to impute the knowledge about potential targets using machine learning strategies. In the following protocols, we describe how to use each web-based tool to accelerate illumination in under-studied proteins.
