SRI’s BioCyc and Pathway Tools publication contributors named to 2022 Highly Cited Researchers List; EcoCyc selected as Global Core Biodata Resource.

SRI International is pleased to announce that eleven colleagues who have completed work under its Bioinformatics Research Group have been named to the annual Highly Cited Researchers 2022 List. The highly anticipated list, released from Clarivate, identifies the world’s most cited contributors to publications in their chosen field or fields.

Chosen from nearly 7,000 globally cited contributors from around the world, the list is composed by the Institute of Scientific Information at Clarivate and is based on quantitative and qualitive data. Names are drawn from publications that rank in the top 1% by peer citations for field and publication year in the Web of Science citation index.

Publications released from the Bioinformatics Research Group focus on the BioCyc collection of genomic and metabolic information in the form of organism-specific Pathway/Genome Databases (PGDBs) and the Pathway Tools software that provides capabilities for storing, analyzing and exploring the PGDBs.

Recognized contributors to the Bioinformatics Research Group publications include:

SRI’s EcoCyc—a key PGDB in BioCyc—was also named as one of the inaugural Global Core Biodata Resources (GCBRs). Announced by the Global Biodata Coalition (GBC), the list consists of 37 resources critical to worldwide life science and biomedical research due to their long-term funding and sustainability. This first set of GCBRs was selected through a rigorous two-stage process open to biodata resources globally. More than 60 resources were submitted.

SRI celebrates the global impact of its BioCyc database, with over 20,000 organism-centric PGDBs in its collection to date. The collection provides solutions for multiple industries including agriculture, bioinformatics, biotechnology, drug discovery, genomics and synthetic biology. Access BioCyc and Pathway Tools here.
