Extract list of genes from a KEGG sub pathways

Hi,

I am trying to extract the pathway level information from different cancer pathways. I need to get the genes involved in all the sub pathways,

For example: Considering the NSCLC pathway (hsa05223 - non-small cell lung cancer), there are different types of pathways inside them; like, Calcium -signaling pathway, MAPK pathway etc. I want to get the list of those genes for studying the pathway cross talk.

Can anyone know, how to get those list?

Erm, KEGG is supposed to be non-hierarchical. Are you sure there actually are any subpathways in kegg?

If you want the pathway to gene maps, this is trivial to do in kg (pip install kg):

$ kg -s hsa | grep 05223 | head -3
05223    STK-2
05223    RAC-gamma
05223    RAC-PK-gamma

See https://github.com/endrebak/kg for more

By sub pathway, I meant those (example: signaling) pathways which are mentioned in a cancer pathway.

To get pathway list for genes, submit the fasta file in KEGG Automatic Annotation Server (KAAS).

Thank you for your help. Is there any way to get the pathway list for the genes?

curl http://rest.kegg.jp/link/pathway/hsa:1019

etc.

So, for example:

for next in $(curl http://rest.kegg.jp/link/genes/hsa05223 | cut -f2 -d $'\t' | sort -u); do curl http://rest.kegg.jp/link/pathway/$next > $next.list; done

Thanks. Got another way to solve using KEGGREST.

path = keggLink("hsa", "pathway")

But, having a problem in splitting it. "path" is stored as character.

I am newbie in programming. Appreciate if someone replies with the code.

Hi, actually, you should post this as comments because these are not answers.
