MOTIVATION Molecular biotechnology now makes it possible to build elaborate systems models, but the systems biology community needs information standards if models are to be shared, evaluated and developed cooperatively. RESULTS We summarize the Systems Biology Markup Language (SBML) Level 1, a free, open, XML-based format for representing biochemical(More)
Most of the published quantitative models in biology are lost for the community because they are either not made available or they are insufficiently characterized to allow them to be reused. The lack of a standard description format, lack of stringent reviewing and authors' carelessness are the main causes for incomplete model descriptions. With today's(More)
The creation of cell models from annotated genome information, as well as additional data from other databases, requires both a format and medium for its distribution. Standards are described for the representation of the data in the form of Document Type Definitions (DTDs) for XML files. Separate DTDs are detailed for genetic, metabolic and gene(More)
NASA's Lunar Precursor Robotic Program (LPRP), formulated in response to the President's Vision for Space Exploration, will execute a series of robotic missions that will pave the way for eventual permanent human presence on the Moon. The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) is first in this series of LPRP missions, and plans to launch in October of 2008 for(More)
MOTIVATION The current paradigm for viewing metabolism, such as the Boehringer Chart or KEGG, takes a metabolite-centric view that is not ideal for genomics analysis because the same enzyme can appear in multiple places. Therefore an enzyme-centric view is also required. RESULTS We have eliminated synonymous compound names taken from the ENZYME database(More)
For decades the magnocellular neurons of the hypothalamo-neurophypophyseal system (HNS), in which either vasopressin or oxytocin are produced and released into the bloodstream, have been playing a pivotal role in fundamental discoveries in the nervous system. The primary structure of vasopressin and oxytocin was the first of all neuropeptides to be(More)
