PythonCyc: A Python Interface for Pathway Tools

It is possible to use the Python programming language to query and modify an organism database (i.e., a PGDB) of Pathway Tools via the PythonCyc package. The orginal version is available for Python 2.7. We are pleased to announce a new version of PythonCyc that works with Python 3.5+.

  • PythonCyc 1.1 is hosted on GitHub. To use PythonCyc, you will have to download it from GitHub and install it on your local computer.
  • The PythonCyc tutorial describes how to install PythonCyc and the main functionalities available.
  • PythonCyc 1.1 has more than 150 functions to interact with Pathway Tools. In particular, you can extract and manipulate all data from PGDBs and modify your own PGDBs by using the well-known Python programming language. The functions and API have not been changed in this release and this version should work with any version of Pathway Tools that works with PythonCyc 1.0.
