This is a simple package to automatically download BiGG reactions and metabolites from the BiGG website. It automatically caches responses to speed up repeated requests.

You can get information about a reaction from the universal model using its ID:

rxn = get_reaction("PFL")

And you can get information about a metabolite from the universal model through its ID:

met = get_metabolite("h2o")

You can test the package with:

] test


The cache can be source of subtle issues. If you get errors or unexpected behavior try the following:

  1. clear_cache!(), restart the Julia session and, try again.
  2. If you still get issues, manually delete the cache files at BiGGReactions.cache_location, restart the Julia session, and try again.
  3. File an issue :/
