Pathway Synthesis using the Act Ontology

  title={Pathway Synthesis using the Act Ontology},
  author={Saurabh Kr. Srivastava},
We describe here the Act Ontology, a formalism for uniformly describing biochemical function, and its use in building an enzymatic pathway synthesizer. A formal description of biochemical function allows us to reason about it, and for the particular case of enzymes, this function allows us to build a synthesizer tool that given a target chemical can automatically infer the most likely pathway that leads to it. The pathway can include known as well as hypothetical enzymes with predicted function… CONTINUE READING
