get.metacyc.all: Download current MetaCyc via BioCyc Web Services

Description Usage Value Note Author(s) References See Also Examples

View source: R/get.metacyc.all.R

Description

This function first retrieves all MetaCyc reaction IDs and download BioPAX level 3 for each reaction, then parse to generate data.frame() object. Note that because this function interacts with BioCyc web service for every reaction, it will take many hours depending on your network speed. Thus, we strongly recommend to use parse.metacyc.reaction() and parse.metacyc.compound() functions in this package after manually downloading MetaCyc from http://biocyc.org/download.shtml

NOTE: The MetaCyc server is occasionally unavailable, so this function accesses our own server as additional resource after trying original server. Our server may not contain latest data.

Usage

Value

R data.frame() object where data fields indclude

MetaCyc

MetaCyc ID

name

Reaction equation with chemical standard name

ec_number

E.C number

name_id

Reaction equation with MetaCyc compound ID

Note

We strongly recommend using parse.metacyc.reaction() and parse.metacyc.reaction() functions because of long running process. These two functions need "dat" files downloaded from MetaCyc. See http://biocyc.org/download.shtml
