Many species of chemical compounds are found in the living cell, each of which is converted or metabolized to another by enzymatic reactions. Metabolism is considered to be a network composed of chemical compounds constituting living cells. Remarkable recent progress in analyses of genome, transcriptome, and proteome enables us to assume the whole metabolic pathways/networks of various cells, tissues, and organs from various species. On the other hand, each of metabolic networks reconstructed using various "-ome" information usually contains a lot of reactions, which requires methodology for understanding and predicting functions of large metabolic networks as an organic whole. The metabolism group is interested in
IMAC is a database of inter- and intra-metabolite atom-level connectivity. IMAC is ready for use on GNU Octave.
