  • KEGG database questions

    Hello, I have some basic questions about KEGG database. As far as I know, they have three types of classification: KO functions, KEGG Pathway Categories (KO), KEGG Pathways (KO, KEGG Orthology). They also have KEGG Pathway Categories (EC), KEGG Pathways (EC).

    1> I want to the hierarchical levels. I know KO functions is lowest level. KEGG pathway and pathway categories. Which is the intermediate level. and which is highest level?

    2>Where can I find the list of KEGG Pathways (KO) and KEGG Pathways Categories (KO). They should have a list something like cabon fixation pathways, nitrogen list etc.

    3> For the EC (KEGG Pathway Categories (EC), KEGG Pathways (EC).), I think it means something about enzyme. I was wondering what is the relationship between EC and KO. Does EC database also created and maintained by Kyoto University? Why it doesn't have the level like KO functions? Whey they create two EC and KO. Weird.

    4> Also, where can I see the the list of KEGG Pathways (EC) and KEGG Pathways Categories (EC).

    Thanks.

    Have you simply gone to http://www.genome.jp/kegg/ and looked at the information there?

      Well, they are not straight-forward. Still, there is no explanation of KEGG categories.

        Recent Advances in Sequencing Analysis Tools
        by seqadmin


        The sequencing world is rapidly changing due to declining costs, enhanced accuracies, and the advent of newer, cutting-edge instruments. Equally important to these developments are improvements in sequencing analysis, a process that converts vast amounts of raw data into a comprehensible and meaningful form. This complex task requires expertise and the right analysis tools. In this article, we highlight the progress and innovation in sequencing analysis by reviewing several of the...

        Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
        by seqadmin




        The field of epigenetics has traditionally concentrated more on DNA and how changes like methylation and phosphorylation of histones impact gene expression and regulation. However, our increased understanding of RNA modifications and their importance in cellular processes has led to a rise in epitranscriptomics research. “Epitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,” explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist...
