The organization of the Escher project.

A) Escher source code can be compiled to a single JavaScript file (either minified or not minified) and two style sheets. The Python package is used to serve the Escher web application in various ways. APIs exist for both JavaScript and Python. B) Escher maps are generated from the BiGG database or built by users. COBRA models are generated using COBRApy. C) The Escher web application can be viewed on the Escher website, or, for local access, using various methods in the Python package.
