Reactome is committed to providing access to high-quality pathway information and helpful data analysis and visualization tools.  With this in mind, we are actively soliciting comments from the research community in order to assess community needs.  We are interested to hear about your experiences with Reactome, and would like to know a bit about your background and research interests so that we can continue to improve the Reactome website and tools.

The survey should take about 5 minutes to complete. The information you provide will never be made publicly available or shared with third parties. Participation in the survey is optional, however, five lucky participants who complete the survey will receive a Reactome T-shirt.

Please spread the word to other friends and colleagues who use Reactome. Your feedback is vital in helping Reactome to serve its user community!
