About 2Path

2Path is a terpenoid metabolic network modeled and stored using a graph database, which aims to preserve important terpenoid biosynthesis characteristics and mitigate challenges in genome-scale storage metabolic networks.

Terpenoids have critical ecological, industrial and commercial relevance. Interactions as signaling for communication intra/inter species, signal molecules to attract pollinating insects, or defense against herbivores and microbes, are protagonized by terpenoids. Due to their chemical composition, many terpenoids possess vast pharmacological applicability in medicine and biotechnology. The biosynthesis of terpenes has been widely studied over the years and today it is known that they can be synthesized from two metabolic pathways: Mevalonate pathway (MVA) and Non-mevalonate pathway (MEP).
