A 3D Game for Learning Cellular and Metabolic Biology
The MetNet database (MetNetDB) contains information on networks of metabolic and regulatory and interactions in Arabidopsis. This information is based on input from biologists in their area of expertise. In addition to the MetNet-curated interactions, we provide Aracyc-curated pathways and AGRIS-curated regulatory network. The data in MetNetDB is updated regularly.
Metabolomic profiling yields a rich resource of information, and one that is often rife with surprises. The overwhelming majority of detected metabolites have yet to be annotated or identified. Metabolomics analysis provides an important resource for establishing functions of genes responsible for metabolism and its regulation, and for modeling metabolic networks. The metabolome enables a deeper understanding of the metabolic potential of a species, and gives investigators the opportunity to uncover new aspects of the synthesis and accumulation of structurally diverse compounds.
The mission of the W.M. Keck Metabolomics Research Laboratory (MRL) is to provide researchers services that enable the high-throughput chemical analysis of metabolites and metabolism. The MRL is equipped with a variety of state-of-the-art analytical instruments that provide researchers with analytical flexibility to analyze a diverse set of metabolites with a variety of chemical and physical properties. The MRL has the capacity to conduct these types of analyses on a 24-hour a day, 7-days a week basis. The establishment of the MRL was made possible by a grant from the W.M. Keck Foundation.
