Explore biological pathways on your palm!!
In comprehending the biological complexity of living systems in disease and healthy states, molecular pathway maps form an integral part of a researcher’s arsenal.
iPathways, developed by The Systems Biology Institute, Tokyo, brings your pathways from the desktop to the device for the first time!!
iPathways provides access to molecular maps constructed in CellDesigner™, compatible with SBML (Systems Biology Markup Language) and SBGN (Systems Biology Graphical Notation) standards.
Browse pathways from your account and explore publications and genes of interest.
iPathways currently has over 6000 registered users and your feedback is key! Drop a message at

Extremely limited


This program doesn't allow you to make new signaling cascades nor does it allow you to edit the ones they already have. This is especially problematic since the majority of the pathways they include are out of date and badly in need of updates to take into account recent research findings. As it stands now this app is pretty useless.



I was really excited when I downloaded this app, I thought it would help with pathways...maybe it does I wouldn't know I can't even get it to register so it's pretty much useless, because you have to register before you can use it.



Sluggish controls. My finger is too big and picks things that I don't intend (and I have small fingers). There is a back button which logs you out instead of taking you back to home screen which you automatically find yourself pressing because that's what it does in every other app. I am studying biochemistry and this was useless because by the time the professor has abandoned a subject to move to the next one, I am still struggling to make it react. I wish I could give it 0 stars. Even worse. I think I should be paid to have used this piece of ---
