Figure 1

Simplified database schema.

This graph shows the connections between the 6 main tables, Organisms, Compounds, Media_Names, Biomass, Sources, and Growth_Data. Also shown are Media_Compounds and Biomass_Compounds, linking tables that connect the Compounds table to the Media_Names and Biomass tables, respectively. Arrows indicate foreign key relationships, in which the head of the arrow points to the primary key being referenced. A full map of the MediaDB schema containing all tables and their connections can be found in Figure S1.
