Version 10 of Pathway Commons is now online!

Pathway Commons collects and integrates pathway and interaction data from public databases.

**Over 53 000 pathways -- Over 3 million interactions -- 23 data sources**

Access this data via web apps, data downloads, web services and software tools designed for experimental biologists, computational biologists and software developers.

Web Apps: ‘Search’ ( pathways by name or genes, view and download in multiple formats. Use ‘PCViz’ to view interactions (

Data: Obtain integrated and normalized data from individual data providers or altogether. File downloads ( are available in Biological Pathway Exchange (BioPAX), simple interaction format (SIF) and gene set database (GMT) formats. Web services ( include full-text search and retrieval in the same formats as downloads in addition to systems biology graphical notation (SBGN) and Javascript Object Notation for Linked Data (JSON-LD). Try the SIF web services ( for rapid graph-theoretical queries of a binary interaction network.

Tools: Access Pathway Commons from Cytoscape using the CyPath2 app ( or from R via paxtoolsR ( View and edit pathways in BioPAX using the Chisio BioPax Editor (ChiBE). Validate BioPAX data using the Paxtools (Java BioPAX toolbox) library (

Training: Visit our Pathway Guide ( online textbook to access primers and workflows supporting pathway analysis of experimental data.
