MPath2PN: translating metabolic pathways into Petri nets



Description
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.

Requirements
MPath2PN is a tool developed in Java. It requires Java 6 and it runs under Linux, Windows and Mac.
