What can I do with Reactome?

View your expression data in a pathway context

Reactome can help you understand the biological significance of expression data. The 'Analyze Expression Data' tool overlays your expression data onto Reactome pathway diagrams, using colour to represent the expression level (Figure 2).

Identify pathways represented by a list of gene, protein or compound identifiers

The 'Analyze Data' tool takes your list of gene, protein or compound identifiers and maps them onto Reactome pathways (Figure 3). It can determine whether any pathways are significantly over-represented (enriched) in your set, answering the question 'does my list contain more members of certain pathways than would be expected by chance?'.
