Permits to create and update Cyc databases. CycADS is an ad hoc data management system centred on a specific database model and on a set of Java programs to import, filter and export relevant information. This tool is able: (i) to help the generation of improved BioCyc computationally derived from databases; (ii) to analyze the metabolism of the pea aphid; (iii) to generate annotation files in other formats; and (iv) to store the biological function data obtained for each protein from different annotation sources. It was used for generating ‘AcypiCyc’ (11) TricaCyc’, DromeCyc databases.
