Background: With the ever increasing use of computational models in the biosciences, the need to share models and reproduce the results of published studies efficiently and easily is becoming more important. To this end, various standards have been proposed that can be used to describe models, simulations, data or other essential information in a consistent fashion. These constitute various separate components required to reproduce a given published scientific result. Results: We describe the… Expand
Mimoza: web-based semantic zooming and navigation in metabolic networks
This work uses the web-based navigation system Mimoza to explore metabolic network models in a semantically zoomable manner, and finds hidden similarities between groups of reactions can be discovered, and generalized to reveal higher-level patterns. Expand
Promoting Coordinated Development of Community-Based Information Standards for Modeling in Biology: The COMBINE Initiative
The goals of this perspective article are to help guide readers toward standards that may be suitable for their research activities, as well as to direct interested readers to relevant communities where they can best expect to receive assistance in how to develop interoperable computational models.

Knowledge-based Generalization of Metabolic Models
A method for knowledge-based generalization is developed that provides a higher-level view of a metabolic model, masking its inessential details while presenting its essential structure, and improves understanding by helping to identify both specificities and potential errors. Expand
Knowledge-based scaling for biological models
A knowledge-based generalization that allows for production of higher-level abstract views of metabolic network models and applies to 1 286 metabolic models from the Path2Model project, showing that it helps to detect organism-, and domain-specific adaptations, as well as to compare models.

Considerations of graph-based concepts to manage of computational biology models and associated simulations
Graph databases can enhance the integrated management of computational models and associated meta-information, as they handle connections between models, simulation descriptions and result data files, as well as external knowledge, thereby resulting in improved model reuse and result reproducibility.

Reproducible computational biology experiments with SED-ML - The Simulation Experiment Description Markup Language
With SED-ML, software can exchange simulation experiment descriptions, enabling the validation and reuse of simulation experiments in different tools, and Authors of papers reporting simulation experiments can make their simulation protocols available for other scientists to reproduce the results.

BioModels Database: An enhanced, curated and annotated resource for published quantitative kinetic models
BioModels Database has become a recognised reference resource for systems biology and is being used by the community in a variety of ways; for example, it is used to benchmark different simulation systems, and to study the clustering of models based upon their annotations. Expand
SBRML: a markup language for associating systems biology data with models
The Systems Biology Results Markup Language (SBRML) is proposed, an XML-based language that associates a model with several datasets and provides a flexible way of indexing the results to model parameter values, which supports both spreadsheet-like data and multidimensional data cubes. Expand
A short introduction to CellML
The basic constituents and structure are simple, providing a common basis for describing models and facilitating the creation of complex models from simpler ones by combining models and/or adding detail to existing models. Expand
Revision history aware repositories of computational models of biological systems
The Physiome Model Repository software is extended to be fully revision history aware, by building it on top of Mercurial, an existing DVCS, to build and understand more complex models. Expand
The SEEK: a platform for sharing data and models in systems biology.
The SEEK is promoted as a data and model management tool that can be adapted to the specific needs of a particular systems biology project and the methods employed for lowering the barriers to adoption of standard formats are presented. Expand
Minimum Information About a Simulation Experiment (MIASE)
Following MIASE guidelines will improve the quality of scientific reporting, and will also allow collaborative, more distributed efforts in computational modeling and simulation of biological processes. Expand
Structuring research methods and data with the research object model: genomics workflows as a case study
Applying a workflow-centric RO model to aggregate and annotate the resources used in a bioinformatics experiment allowed us to retrieve the conclusions of the experiment in the context of the driving hypothesis, the executed workflows and their input data. Expand
The CombineArchive Toolkit - facilitating the transfer of research results
The CombineArchive Toolkit supports scientists in promoting and publishing their work by means of creating, exploring, modifying, and sharing archives. Expand
