Summary: Scientific visualization is a key technology to enhance our understanding of huge masses of omics data, especially for cell-wide, high-throughput measurements of the physiological networks. We have developed a web application that visualizes complex omics data of multiple layers simultaneously, including transcriptome, pro-teome, and metabolome, onto an integrated pathway diagram de-rived by connecting the individual KEGG pathway maps; the mapped images are generated in Scalable Vector Graphics for easy editing by hand or with computer programs or drawing software.

Pathway Visualization Web Application (Click here to proceed)

With this CGI-based web application, you can map your own data onto the KEGG pathway and generate the SVG graphics. Heteromeric enzymes are correctly mapped with multiple gene components, and metabolic, transcriptomic, and proteomic data can be mapped simultaneously.
