Comparative Analysis Summary Results

Note: In addition to reflecting differences in biology of different organisms, these statistics will reflect differences in the levels of curation, data availability, and completeness of the PGDBs for these organisms.

Comparative analysis and statistics were computed for the following organism databases:

Click on any cell of a table to see more detail about the cell (usually an enumeration of all entities represented by the statistic). Click on a row or column header to see a more detailed view of the entire row or column. Click on a table header (the top-left cell of the table), where available, for a more detailed view of the entire table. Mouse over a link in a table (such as a row heading) for a further explanation of that item, or to see a description of what will be displayed if you click on that link.

Table 1: Breakdown of Pathways by Pathway Class

This table presents statistics on the number of pathways present in each pathway class. The two largest top-level classes, Biosynthesis and Degradation/Utilization/Assimilation, are broken down further to show the distribution of pathways among their next-level subclasses. The vast majority of pathways are assigned to only a single class. However, a small number may be assigned to more than one.

To see a list of all individual pathways, indicating which organisms each pathway are present in, click "Pathway Class" in the top-left corner. Click on a class, to see all individual pathways that are members of that class.

Table 2: Pathway Holes

A pathway hole is a reaction in a pathway for which no corresponding gene has been identified in the genome. Pathway holes may exist for a number of possible reasons: They may represent true enzymatic functions in the organism for which the gene has not yet been found, or they could represent false positive pathway predictions or cases in which the pathway in this organism differs slightly from the reference pathway in MetaCyc. This table counts all the pathway holes in each organism database, and classifies pathways based on their number of pathway holes.

Clicking on the first row (Number of Pathway Holes) will show all reactions that are holes in any selected organism database, plus the corresponding genes in other organism databases.
