Datanator tutorial http://tess.elixir-uk.org/materials/datanator-tutorial Datanator is an integrated database of genomic and biochemical data designed to help investigators find data about specific molecules and reactions in specific organisms and specific environments for meta-analyses and mechanistic models. Datanator currently includes metabolite concentrations, RNA modifications and half-lives, protein abundances and modifications, and reaction kinetics integrated from several databases and numerous publications. The Datanator website and REST API provide tools for extracting clouds of data about specific molecules and reactions in specific organisms and specific environments, as well as data about similar molecules and reactions in taxonomically similar organisms. This tutorial provides a brief introduction to the Datanator database and web application. The tutorial illustrates how to search the Datanator database and obtain and refine clouds of data about specific metabolites, RNA, proteins, and reactions of interest.
