Evaluation and comparison of bioinformatic tools for the enrichment analysis of metabolomics data

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 5749025
PMID: 29291722
DOI: 10.1186/s12859-017-2006-0

[…] e than one PubChem, HMDB or ChEBI identifiers were found in this work, which reduce enrichment analyses’ accuracy. Several on-going initiatives on identifiers standardization such as BridgeDB and the Chemical Translation Service are trying to overcome redundancy [–]. Some tools such as MetaboAnalyst, ConsensusPathDB or PathVisio embrace these initiatives and accept different types of identifiers, […]


A review of computational tools for design and reconstruction of metabolic pathways

PMCID: 5851934
PMID: 29552648
DOI: 10.1016/j.synbio.2017.11.002

[…] tructures and compound synonyms . RxnFinder used PubChem database to unify compound synonyms and added more than 50,000 reactions curated from literature to its in-house database . Alternatively, the Chemical Translation Service and UniChem provide a simple web application that can interconvert metabolite IDs across different databases. Organism-specific GSMs or knowledge-bases (e.g., EcoCyc , A […]

Internet Databases of the Properties, Enzymatic Reactions, and Metabolism of Small Molecules—Search Options and Applications in Food Science

Int J Mol Sci
PMCID: 5187839
PMID: 27929431
DOI: 10.3390/ijms17122039

[…] luding the International Journal of Molecular Sciences). In some databases, identifiers can be found by translating a compound’s systematic name or chemical code (SMILES or InChI) with the use of the Chemical Translation Service (University of California, Davis, CA, USA) []. Chemical names can also be translated into other identifiers in the Chemical Identifier Resolver (National Institute of Canc […]


Metabolomic Responses of Arabidopsis Suspension Cells to Bicarbonate under Light and Dark Conditions

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5071901
PMID: 27762345
DOI: 10.1038/srep35778

[…] med using functionalities available at MBRole (http://csbg.cnb.csic.es/mbrole/), MSEA (http://www.msea.ca/MSEA/) and MetPA (http://metpa.metabolomics.ca/MetPA/) while ID conversions were performed at Chemical Translation Service (CTS: http://cts.fiehnlab.ucdavis.edu/conversion/batch) (). Short Time series Expression Miner (STEM) was used as a Java implementation with a graphical user interface ava […]


Plasma Biomarkers for Monitoring Brain Pathophysiology in FMR1 Premutation Carriers

PMCID: 4981605
PMID: 27570505
DOI: 10.3389/fnmol.2016.00071

[…] Metabolite identification was performed through the use of several databases including PubChem Compound (), KEGG (), and HMDB (, , ) and the online chemical translation service (). Raw data were normalized to the average of pooled control data and results were plotted as in LOG2 scale, so that equal fold changes (up/down-regulated) will have the […]
