Numerous genome sequencing projects for different organisms have produced catalogs of genes and related products. However, the functional application of this information is often not available or is not well organized. Led by Minour Kaneshia, the KEGG Project is an attempt to bridge the gap between the genes and their functional implications. This site contains a searchable database of computerized information pathways that consist of interacting genes or molecules. KEGG provides links for regulatory and metabolic pathways, molecular catalogs, and gene catalogs produced by the various genome projects. Students and professionals in genome research will find useful information at this growing site.
