CARMEN supports functional and comparative genome analysis. It provides the visualization of automatically obtained metabolic networks based on KEGG database information and stores the generated data in standardized SBML format which can be visualized using e.g. the CellDesigner software. CARMEN provides two main methods for the generation of SBML: KGML-based reconstruction and SBML-based reconstruction. The former can be used to reconstruct pathways based on EC numbers using KGML data. The latter performs a comparative metabolic reconstruction of two organisms based on bidirectional best BLAST hits and requires an SBML template.
