Abstract

Motivation: The rapid advances in metabolomics pose a significant challenge in presentation and interpretation of results. Development of new, engaging visual aids is crucial to advancing our understanding of new findings.

Results: We have developed MetaboCraft, a Minecraft plugin which creates immersive visualizations of metabolic networks and pathways in a 3D environment and allows the results of user experiments to be viewed in this context, presenting a novel approach to exploring the metabolome.

Availability and implementation: https://github.com/argymeg/MetaboCraft/; https://hub.docker.com/r/ronandaly/metabocraft/.

Supplementary information: Supplementary data are available at Bioinformatics online.
