Kanehisa LaboratoriesThe large-scale molecular datasets generated by genome sequencing and other high-throughput experimental technologies are the basis for understanding life as a molecular system and for developing practical applications in medical, pharmaceutical and environmental sciences. The key to linking such large-scale datasets to practical values lies in bioinformatics technologies, not only in terms of computational methods, but also in terms of organizing databases. Kanehisa Laboratories has been developing the KEGG database as a computer model of the biological system such as the cell, the organism and the biosphere. KEGG has enabled systems-level interpretation of genomes and other high-throughput data and is now one of the most utilized biological databases because of its practical values.
