[…] []. we use own parser to map the kegg pathways in kgml format to our data model []. there are two other major convertor tools such as keggconvertor [] (a java based tool to convert kgml to sbml) and keggtranslator [] (a java based tool to convert kgml to various formats such as biopax, sbml and gml). however, we have elected to implement our own parser to populate our own database schema, […]

[…] the widely used kegg maps into sbgn, and they mostly compute entirely new layouts rather than utilizing layout information derived from the original (kegg, sbml, or biopax) map. tools such as keggtranslator [] and mgv [] can load and translate kegg maps but also do not support layout adjustment based on information from the original kegg map., some pathway database providers have begun […]

[…] annotation of chemical formulas and molecular weight of small molecules, to an automated atom balance check of all reactions. all those strategies are now implemented in the second release of the keggtranslator application [] and described in detail in the following sections., several subsequent steps are involved in the creation of initial models from kegg pathways. all of these steps […]
