Aspergillus Genomes is a resource for viewing annotated genes arising from various Aspergillus sequencing and annotation projects. Maintenance of this resource is a joint undertaking by CADRE and the Aspergillus Website. Housed genomes, therefore, benefit from extensive cross-linking with medical information to create a unique resource spanning genomics and clinical aspects of the genus. [more info]

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, 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.
