ready Pathway Ontology

Abbreviation:PW

terminology artifact

General Information
The goal of the Pathway Ontology is to cover all types of biological pathways, including altered and disease pathways, and to capture the relationships between them within the hierarchical structure of a Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG). The five nodes of the ontology are: classic metabolic, regulatory, signaling, drug and disease pathways. An extensive survey of the review literature along with searches of existing pathway databases have been used to choose terms and their position within the tree. The ontology is continually expanding along with the development of Pathway and Disease Portals at RGD.

Implementing Databases (3)
Rat Genome Database
The Rat Genome Database is the premier site for genetic, genomic, phenotype, and disease data generated from rat research. It provides easy access to corresponding human and mouse data for cross-species comparison and its comprehensive data and innovative software tools make it a valuable resource for researchers worldwide.

Pathway Interaction Database
The Pathway Interaction Database is a highly-structured, curated collection of information about known biomolecular interactions and key cellular processes assembled into signaling pathways.

Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes
KEGG is a database resource for understanding high-level functions and utilities of the biological system, such as the cell, the organism and the ecosystem, from molecular-level information, especially large-scale molecular datasets generated by genome sequencing and other high-throughput experimental technologies.
