Roche Biochemical Pathways
Explore the pathways

Mapping the paths of life

Biochemical Pathways provide an overview of the chemical reactions of cells in various species and organs. Dr. Michal first compiled the Pathways Chart in 1965 and has been fine-tuning it ever since. Today, and with the collaboration of Roche, the two enormous posters can be found hanging in just about every research institute from Argentina to New Zealand.

The Biochemical Pathways Wall Charts have enjoyed worldwide popularity as a standard reference for nearly 50 years. Because we care about science and scientists, the charts can now be accessed as an interactive online service with additional features. In 2021, we freely distributed this invaluable scientific reference to >10,450 to students and educators in 100 countries.

Dr. Gerhard Michal the author and creator of our brilliant Biochemical Pathways poster discusses his life’s work.
You have to be someone with tenacity, patience and a love for science.

Editor of the Roche Biochemical
