Dear list, I will soon be doing some pathway enrichment analysis and would like to make the most of what Bioconductor has to offer, but I am a bit confused about the current state of packages relying upon KEGG, such as clusterProfiler, KEGGgraph, keggorthology, KEGGprofile, PathNet and pathview, just to name a few. As you probably know, KEGG has moved to a subscription-based model for accessing his FTP site in 2011 [1]. The following is my understanding of how this has affected Bioconductor, but corrections and clarifications are welcome. The KEGG.db and KEGGSOAP packages are no longer updated and any package that relies on them is also outdated. On the other hand, since KEGG has continued to offer access through its REST API, the KEGGREST package is now the preferred way to pull up to date information out of KEGG. On top of this, some package maintainers may have used their own implementation to access KEGG, so there's no easy way to filter packages with updated or outdated information based on what they depend on. Provided this is broadly correct, my question is: how do I know which KEGG-related packages are reliable in terms of up-to-dateness and which not? Thank you.

Hi Enrico, Pathview downloads the latest KEGG pathway data in real time following REST-like URL mechanism. It was written for pathway analysis and data visualization/integration. Should fits your needs well. The package is available at: http://bioconductor.org/packages/release/bioc/html/pathview.html It was published recently at: http://bioinformatics.oxfordjournals.org/content/29/14/1830.full The package vignette describes workflows/exmaples on microarray data (gene data) and metabolomics data (compound data), although it works for arbitrary others data types mappable to pathways. I also described a Pathview+GAGE workflow on RNA-seq data pathway analysis at: https://stat.ethz.ch/pipermail/bioconductor/2013-July/054021.html HTH.

Dear Calin and Weijun, Thanks for your suggestions, I will look at both packages.

Hi Enrico, In general, I think you should assume that almost all KEGG resources are out of date since KEGG basically cut the world off with a pay wall some time ago. The only exception I know of with any certainty is KEGGREST. And that is only because KEGG has (at least for now) decided to allow continued access to their REST API.

Hi Marc, Thanks for your answer. So, apparently, the only two packages relying on KEGGREST are PAPi and ROntoTools, an unfortunately limited selection. May I ask, given the current situation, what is the most advisable way to perform pathway enrichment analysis using Bioconductor? Thank you.

Enrico, The ROntoTools package uses the KEGGREST to download and parse the KEGG data into graph objects. In addition it performs both an over- representation analysis and a more advanced impact analysis on the given set of pathways. If you want just to use the pathway data (as downloaded and parsed by this package), by using the function keggPathwayGraphs("hsa") or keggPathwayGraphs("hsa", updateCache = TRUE) to re-download the data you can obtain a list of graph objects representing the pathways in KEGG.
