BiGG 2 is currently a beta release, which means that we are still testing
the database and website. Please be patient if you encounter bugs, and be
aware that some changes to the database content may change before the final
release. If you have questions or find any bugs in the database, please
contact Zachary King (zaking-AT-ucsd-DOT-edu).
BiGG is a knowledgebase of Biochemically, Genetically and Genomically
structured genome-scale metabolic network reconstructions.
BiGG integrates more than 70 published genome-scale metabolic
networks into a single database with a set of stardized identifiers
called BiGG IDs. Gene in the BiGG models are mapped to NCBI genome
annotations, and metabolites are linked to many external databases
(KEGG, PubChem, and many more).
BiGG can be browsed on this website or accessed using a web
API. Try searching for a metabolite, reaction, gene, or organism in the
search box to browse the content of genome-scale models. Question marks like
are available throughout the site to
provide more help.
