Director: Peter D. Karp, Ph.D.
SRI's Bioinformatics Research Group performs research into new
computational methods for bioinformatics. Our interdisciplinary group
of scientists also develops bioinformatics software, databases, and
- The BioCyc Collection of Pathway/Genome Databases contains 1700 databases, including:
- EcoCyc -- A Model Organism Database for Escherischia coli K-12. The
EcoCyc project has integrated information on the E. coli genome, and on the E. coli metabolic and
genetic networks from more than 22,000 publications.
- MetaCyc -- An encyclopedia of experimentally elucidated metabolic pathways and enzymes
derived from 2,216 organisms.
- The Pathway Tools software
-- Can be used to query, visualize, and analyze existing Pathway/Genome Databases from the
BioCyc collection, and to create new Pathway/Genome
Databases for an annotated genome.
- BioWarehouse -- A database
interoperation environment that supports data mining and integration of
multiple databases including the UniProt, BioCyc, NCBI Taxonomy, Genbank, CMR, ENZYME, Gene Ontology,
and KEGG databases.
- Lisp tools for bioinformatics: The
BioDB-Loader toolkit loads
several bioinformatics databases into Lisp for facile processing.
