Molecular biologists can turn their genomic or proteomic data into maps of metabolic pathways with this program from SRI International of Menlo Park, California. The nonprofit institute's BioCyc Web site (NetWatch, 30 January 2004, p. 601) houses metabolic diagrams for more than 200 species. Researchers can download a software bundle that creates similar figures for their own organisms, using gene-expression results and other types of data. You can animate the diagrams to reflect changes over time. The program is free to academic researchers who request it.
