Access KEGG (Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomics)
KEGG is a resource purposed to facilitate understanding of the functions and utilities of the biological system– cells, organisms and ultimately the ecosystem– based on genomic and molecular-level information. It is a computer representation of the biological system, consisting of the molecular building blocks– genes, proteins and chemical substances, integrated with molecular wiring diagrams of interaction, reaction and relational networks. Extensive data is available to view; ftp downloading requires a subscription. KEGG was developed in collaboration with the Bioinformatics Center, Institute for Chemical Research, Kyoto University and the Human Genome Center, Institute of Medical Science, University of Tokyo.
