What’s The Answer? (color genes in a pathway)

BioStar is a site for asking, answering and discussing bioinformatics questions and issues. We are members of the community and find it very useful. Often questions and answers arise at BioStar that are germane to our readers (end users of genomics resources). Every Thursday we will be highlighting one of those items or discussions here in this thread. You can ask questions in this thread, or you can always join in at BioStar.

This question was started a while ago, but it had a recent answer that floated it back up. But it’s a question that people ask a lot as they are dealing with big lists of genes from various experiments or mining exercises. And lately I was highlighting some pathway stuff at BioStar recently so I thought this would be a nice companion piece.

Question: Color specific proteins/genes on a signaling pathway

I have a list of genes/protiens. I would like to color my list of proteins/genes on a signaling pathway. I know KEGG has a tool for doing this (the search and color pathway map). Is they any other alternative that is publicly available? If not, how can I accomplish this task (any pointer or heads up). Thanks


I knew about the KEGG method, but really need to look harder at Biotapestry. Check out the answers to see more on that.
