Figure 1

Instance graph for representation of a reaction between three chemicals (e.g., A B + C ). Some of the relationships that support navigation from reactions to chemicals are shown, as well as links between chemicals. The three chemicals are produced by the "human" organism. Quantitative kinetic parameters are also shown for the reaction (backward and forward rate of the reaction). The figure illustrates how a graph of object instances is used to represent biological information corresponding to a biochemical reaction.
