BioModels Database


BioModels Database serves as a reliable repository of computational models of biological processes. It hosts models described in peer-reviewed scientific literature and models generated automatically from pathway resources (Path2Models). A large number of models collected from literature are manually curated and semantically enriched with cross-references from external data resources. The resource allows scientific community to store, search and retrieve mathematical models of their interest. In addition, features such as generation of sub-models, online simulation, conversion of models into different representational formats, and programmatic access via web services, are provided.

All models are provided under the terms of the Creative Commons CC0 Public Domain Dedication, cf. our terms of use. This means that the models are available freely for use, modification and distribution, to all users. More information about BioModels Database can be found in the frequently asked questions (FAQ).
