The BioCyc Database Collection is a collection of Pathway/Genome Databases. Each database in the BioCyc collection describes the genome and metabolic pathways of a single organism.
EcoCyc is a bioinformatics database that describes the genome and the biochemical machinery of Escherichia coli. The long-term goal of the project is to describe the molecular catalog of the E. coli cell, as well as the functions of each of its molecular parts, to facilitate a system-level understanding of E. coli. EcoCyc integrates information from more than 30,000 scientific publications.
MetaCyc is a database of nonredundant, experimentally elucidated metabolic pathways. MetaCyc contains more than 2500 pathways from more than 2800 different organisms (circa 2012). The MetaCyc data were curated from more than 50,000 scientific publications. MetaCyc describes metabolic pathways, reactions, enzymes, and metabolites.
Pathway Tools is a systems biology software system that supports several use cases: development of organism-specific database that integrate many bioinformatics datatypes, from genomes to pathways; Development of metabolic-flux models using flux-balance analysis; scientific visualization, web publishing, and querying of organism-specific databases; analysis of omics datasets; and Computational prediction of metabolic pathways, metabolic pathway hole fillers, and operons.
The following are in reverse chronological order of publication.
