The biochemistry of living beings is a complex network of reactants, products and enzymes with multiple interconnections representing reactions and regulation. Examples are given by the Boehringer poster [5] and the atlas “Biochemical Pathways” [6]. In the Electronic Biochemical Pathways project we intend to build a platform for a convenient electronic access to the information covered by the poster and the atlas.
