Welcome to the COVID-19 Pathways Portal on WikiPathways

This special subset of disease pathways is being highlighted during the current COVID-19 crisis. This content is released under a CC0 waiver to be freely used, re-used and distributed. Let us know if you add a new pathway or want to recommend one for this collection.




The current list of authors and contributors of content of this portal (in alphabetical order): Matthew Conroy, Rex D A B, Jordi Doijen, Lauren Dupuis, Friederike Ehrhart, Chris Evelo, Kristina Hanspers, Amber Koning, Martina Kutmon, Marvin Martens, Penny Nymark, Alex Pico, Denise Slenter, Caroline Thorn, the Reactome project, and many more.


  • A paper about this project was published in Scientific Data: Ostaszewski, et al. "COVID-19 Disease Map, building a computational repository of SARS-CoV-2 virus-host interaction mechanisms." Scientific data 7.1 (2020): 1-4.
  • A more recent, longer paper from the whole community is available on bioRxiv: Ostaszewski, et al. "COVID-19 Disease Map, a computational knowledge repository of SARS-CoV-2 virus-host interaction mechanisms." bioRxiv 2020.10.26.356014


Call to Action

We are helping to coordinate an international effort to build and curate pathway models relevant to the COVID-19 pandemic. Review the resources below to see how you can get involved.

IMPORTANT: WikiPathways is dedicated to FAIR standards. All content at WikiPathways is freely available for use and reuse by a CC0 waiver.


There are curation tests being done, that check a number of drawing patterns, e.g. as agreed with the COVID-19 Disease Maps project. The reports can be found in this repository.
