Constructing a fish metabolic network model

Genome Biol. 2010;11(11):R115. doi: 10.1186/gb-2010-11-11-r115. Epub 2010 Nov 29.


We report the construction of a genome-wide fish metabolic network model, MetaFishNet, and its application to analyzing high throughput gene expression data. This model is a stepping stone to broader applications of fish systems biology, for example by guiding study design through comparison with human metabolism and the integration of multiple data types. MetaFishNet resources, including a pathway enrichment analysis tool, are accessible at
