The integrated analysis of different omics-level data sets is most naturally performed in the context of common process or pathway association. In this chapter, the two basic approaches for a metabolic pathway-centric integration of proteomics and metabolomics data are described: the knowledge-based approach relying on existing metabolic pathway information, and a data-driven approach that aims to deduce functional (pathway) associations directly from the data. Relevant algorithmic approaches for the generation of metabolic networks of model organisms, their functional analysis, database resources, visualization and analysis tools will be described. The use of proteomics data in the process of metabolic network reconstruction will be discussed.
