A knowledge base to represent metabolism data has been developed by the Helix research team at INRIA Rhône-Alpes. This base provides access to information on chemical compounds, biochemical reactions, enzymes, genes and metabolic pathways from fully sequenced micro-organisms. The model has been implemented by using an object/association technology developed at INRIA. Beside its use as a general repository, the base may have applications in metabolic simulations and pathway reconstruction in newly sequenced genomes.
