MPath2PN: translating metabolic pathways into Petri nets
An obstacle to the use of PNs for modelling metabolic pathways seems to be,
paradoxically, the amount of different sources of data on metabolic pathways
and the number of simulation and analysis tools for PNs. This is due to the
dishomogeneity both of database formats for metabolic data and of input
formats for PNs tools.
MPath2PN is a tool for translating metabolic pathways
into PN models, coping with different input and output formats. The aim is
to allow for a systematic reuse of the tools already developed for PNs also
for the analysis and simulation of metabolic pathways.
MPath2PN is a tool developed in Java. It requires Java 6 and it runs under
Linux, Windows and Mac.
