PATIKA Database integrates data from several sources, including Entrez Gene, UniProt, PubChem, GO, IntAct, HPRD, and Reactome. The database focuses only on human pathway data and currently contains several thousand states of many different biological entities and a few thousand reactions. However stay tuned as we are currently working on integrating other protein and interaction databases, most notably BIND.

Users can query and access this data using PATIKAweb's query interface, and can save their results in XML or export to common picture formats. Furthermore, our BioPAX and SBML exporters can be used as part of this Web service.

On a technical note, PATIKA Database is based on the Spring Framework, and uses Hibernate as its ORM layer.
