This article describes a coordinated set of bioinformatics databases and software tools designed to solve multiple problems faced by metabolic engineers and microbiologists related to metabolic pathways.
This article highlights recent improvements to the curated data in the areas of metabolism, transport, DNA repair, and regulation of gene expression.
Pathway Size Matters: The Influence of Pathway Granularity on Over-Representation (Enrichment) Statistics
We show that alternative pathway definitions can alter enrichment p -values by up to nine orders of magnitude, whereas statistical corrections typically alter enrichment p -values by only two orders of magnitude.
Prediction of Selected Biosynthetic Pathways for the Lipopolysaccharide Components in Porphyromonas gingivalis
We use bioinformatics tools to predict biosynthetic pathways for the production of the normal (O-type) lipopolysaccharide in the W50 strain Porphyromonas gingivalis and compare the pathway with other putative pathways in fully sequenced and completed genomes of other pathogenic strains.
This article provides an update on the developments in MetaCyc during September 2017 to August 2019, up to version 23.1.
This article provides an update on the developments in MetaCyc during the past two years, including the expansion of data and addition of new features.
BioCyc.org is a microbial genome Web portal that combines thousands of genomes with additional information inferred by computer programs, imported from other databases and curated from the biomedical literature by biologist curators.
New experimental discoveries about gene products, their function and regulation, new metabolic pathways, enzymes and cofactors are regularly added to EcoCyc.
The MetaCyc database of metabolic pathways and enzymes and the BioCyc collection of pathway/genome databases
The MetaCyc database (MetaCyc.org) is a freely accessible comprehensive database describing metabolic pathways and enzymes from all domains of life.
