MetExplore offers a free all-in-one online solution composed of interactive tools for metabolic network curation, network exploration and omics data analysis. In particular, it is possible to curate and annotate metabolic networks in a collaborative environment. The network exploration is also facilitated in MetExplore by a system of interactive tables connected to a powerful network visualisation module. Finally, the contextualisation of metabolic elements in the network and the calculation of over-representation statistics make it possible to interpret any kind of omics data.

MetExplore is a sustainable project maintained since 2010 freely available at
