Return the two lookup table (dicts) two convert from one dictionary to the other KEGGlist(db, organism='', **kwargs) -> dict return all the element of a specific database for a certain organism, in the form of a dictionary element: description KEGGget(element, option='', **kwargs) -> dict return the dictionary of description of the required object. possible options are: aaseq | ntseq | mol | kcf | image | kgml KEGGbrite(britename, option='', **kwargs) -> dict of dicts analize a brite ontology and return a dictionary of dictionaries. still in beta version, works up to three level of hierarchy.
