The Escher interface.

A) The application includes a set of menus with a link to the documentation, a button bar for accessing common features, and a menu for jumping to maps that were built with the same model. B) To build pathway maps, enter the Add reaction mode using the Edit menu or the button bar. Click on the canvas or an existing metabolite to see a search menu. Reactions can be searched by reaction ID, by metabolite, and by gene. When a gene dataset or reaction dataset is loaded, suggestions appear for the reactions with the largest values in the dataset.
