A repository of genome-scale metabolic networks (GSMNs) and biochemical pathways from a number of major resources imported into a common namespace of chemical compounds, reactions, cellular compartments-namely MNXref-and proteins. MetaNetX provides a comprehensive suite of tools for the analysis of genome-scale metabolic models, based on a single integrated namespace of metabolites and metabolic reactions that integrates the most widely used biochemical databases and model repositories – MNXref. The reconciliation process used in MNXref greatly simplifies the development and analysis of genome-scale metabolic models, allowing users to concentrate on model analysis rather than the time-consuming problem of identifier mapping.
