Pathway Tools at SRI
Pathway Tools provides a powerful and comprehensive set of features for querying, visualization, analysis, and curation of the BioCyc database collection. Pathway Tools combines representation and inference techniques from artificial intelligence to extract additional information from genomes, and encode that information within a sophisticated ontology. Pathway Tools can operate on the BioCyc collection of PGDBs available through SRI, and on locally created PGDBs, such as for proprietary genomes. It can also operate on more than 1,700 PGDBs created by third parties, including those listed in SRI’s Registry of Pathway/Genome Databases at http://biocyc.org/registry.html.
To date, SRI has licensed Pathway Tools to more than 3,000 academic and industrial groups.
