Metabolic Pathway Database
We have now added biosynthetic pathways for Asp. fumigatus, A. nidulans, A. terreus and Neosartorya fischeri. The genomes have been mapped to a metabolic pathway database.
This resource shows hundreds of pathways which can be viewed at a variety of resolutions. Some pathways have been manually curated (Tuckwell et.al., 2010) but most are automatically annotated using PC Tools software.
Manually curated pathways
Others can be used as a starting point for more detailed research - see figure from forthcoming Medical Mycology supplement.
We would welcome help with the curation process, please contact us here if you would like to curate another of the 227 pathways yet to be checked.
Please join the Online community here if you wish to help with coordination.
