Analyze molecular pathways and accelerate discovery research.

Get started today

Successful drug development requires a fundamental understanding of a drug’s impact on a disease at the molecular level. When this information is sourced from multiple locations, considerable resources must be devoted to data collection and analysis. MetaCore, a Cortellis™ solution, delivers high-quality biological systems content in the context of comprehensive, validated biological pathways, giving you essential data and analytics to avoid failed drug development and accelerate your scientific research. Regular updates to the data ensure you always have access to the latest information, freeing up your bioinformatics team to focus on more complex analyses.

Utilize the power of data how and when you need it.

Curated data

MetaCore provides the core capabilities of precise pathway analysis, knowledge mining, simple bioinformatics and effective visualizations in a comprehensive, off-the-shelf package. Use high-quality, 100% manually curated biological pathway data from peer-reviewed literature to accelerate drug development by rapidly generating and validating hypotheses for novel biomarkers, targets and mechanisms of action.


It's very clear that the human curation behind [MetaCore] makes the information considerably more valuable.

Pathway and network analysis

Conduct sophisticated, integrated pathway and network analysis of multiomics data across previous research. Using an R script package that provides a set of simplified functions, you can retrieve and filter content, manipulate molecular networks, create sub-networks, and create functional analysis scripts that apply to many omics data types.


MetaCore is now embedded at Fiocruz; it is definitely something that we need.

Direct access

More complex analyses and in-house data-mining solutions are supported to allow direct programmatic access to all or part of the underlying database. This solution allows your bioinformatics team to take advantage of content customization, integration and custom analytics – either through direct delivery of the data on-premise or in a flexible, fully secured and maintained hosted environment.


MetaCore made our lives a lot easier. Researchers can identify pathways that may be involved in processes under study, come up with hypotheses and ways of testing them.
