The Reactome project is a collaboration among Ontario Institute for Cancer Research / Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, The European Bioinformatics Institute, The Gene Ontology Consortium and New York University to develop a curated resource of core pathways and reactions in biology. The aim of FlyReactome, based in the Department of Genetics, University of Cambridge, is to develop a curated repository for Drosophila melanogaster pathways and reactions. The information in this database is authored by biological researchers with expertise in their fields, maintained by the FlyReactome staff, and cross-referenced with the following external databases: FlyBase, UniProt, NCBI (GeneID and RefSeq), Ensembl, BioGPS, CTD, KEGG (Genes and Compound), ChEBI, PubMed and GO.
In addition to curated Drosophila melanogaster events, inferred orthologous events
in other Drosophila species, mosquito, silkworm, red flour beetle, honey bee, wasp, and human body louse will be available in a future release.
FlyReactome is a free on-line resource, and Reactome software is open-source. However, please take note of our disclaimer.
