Bio2BEL KEGG is a package to build KEGG gene sets in the ComPath environment.

Bio2BEL KEGG is a package for enriching BEL networks with KEGG information by wrapping its RESTful API. KEGG. This package downloads pathway information from KEGG’s API and store it in template data model relating genes to pathways. Furthermore, it is integrated in the ComPath environment for pathway database comparison.
