Resources for Pathway Analysis, Functional Annotation, and Interactome Reconstruction with Omics Data

I just read a helpful paper on pathway analysis and interactome reconstruction:

Tieri, P., Fuente, A. D., Termanini, A., & Franceschi, C. (2011). Integrating Omics Data for Signaling Pathways, Interactome Reconstruction, and Functional Analysis. In Bioinformatics for Omics Data, Methods in Molecular Biology, vol. 719. doi: 10.1007/978-1-61779-027-0. (PubMed).

The authors give a description about how each of these tools can be used in pathway analysis and functional annotation, along with an example of using several of these resources for mapping the interactome for transcription factor NF-kappa-B.

While a more extensive list of hundreds of tools and databases for biological pathway analysis can be found at Pathguide, this looks like a good starting point.
