Provides explicit biochemical description of each reaction. UniPathway is a resource for the representation and annotation of enzymatic reactions and metabolic pathways. It allows individual reactions to be linked via their chemical constituents, and reduces each metabolic pathway to a set of constituent linear sub-pathways. It also incorporates additional concepts designed to make the description of species-specific pathway variants more applicable to protein annotation.
