SGD Video Tutorials: Yeast Biochemical Pathways

Yeast Pathways is a database of metabolic pathways in Saccharomyces species, primarily, the model eukaryote S. cerevisiae. Yeast Pathways contains information about pathways, reactions, enzymes and compounds; this information has been manually curated from the scientific literature and can be readily queried, visualized, and analyzed. Yeast Pathways was built using Pathway Tools software developed by Peter Karp and colleagues at SRI International.

These tutorials demonstrate how to navigate to and within Yeast Pathway, and highlight some key features, such as querying for pathways by keywords or browsing by ontologies, and using the cellular overview to visualize high-throughput experimental data.

For further information about how Yeast Pathways was built, please view Yeast Pathways Background. For further help on how to use the tool, please view the written documentation How to Use a Pathway Tools Website.
