This app provides a web services interface to Pathway Tools repositories.
It utilizes the web services infrastructure in Cytoscape to access web services using [Pathway Tools](http://bioinformatics.ai.sri.com/ptools/) version 14.5 or better.
* The app allows users to select the site they want to use (the [BioCyc repostory](http://www.biocyc.org/) is the default).
* The app provides the user with a list of databases to choose from. The user may search the database by entering the name of a pathway, protein, or compound.
* Double-clicking on the desired pathway will load it into Cytoscape using the [BioPAX](http://www.biopax.org/) format.
* As part of the load process, the SMILES strings for any small molecules with structures are pulled out of the CML and put into a "smiles" cytoscape attribute to provide compatability with chemViz.
