• WikiNetworks: translating manually created biological pathways for topological analysis

    11 days ago - By Oxford Journals

    AbstractSummaryWikiPathways is a database of 2979 biological pathways across 31 species created using the drawing software PathVisio. Many of these pathways are not directly usable for network-based topological analyses due to differences in curation styles and drawings. We developed the WikiNetworks package to standardize and construct directed networks by combining geometric information and manual annotations from WikiPathways. WikiNetworks performs significantly better than existing tools. This enables the use of high-quality WikiPathways resource for network-based topological analysis...
