After 5 years, free systems biology markup language has proven popular
Date:3/2/2010

Blacksburg, Va. A scientific paper that describes a file format used by scientists to represent models of biological processes has exceeded 500 citations in the ISI Web of Knowledge, an online academic database that documents the impact of scientific publications. The Systems Biology Markup Language (SBML) is designed to enable the exchange of quantitative models of biochemical networks between different computer software packages, allowing the models to be shared and published in a form other researchers can use in various software environments.

Information standards are needed by the systems biology community to help share, evaluate, and develop models of biological processes. Over the years, many scientists and computer specialists have contributed their time and expertise to the development of SBML as part of the international consortium known as the SBML Forum. The paper that first described the SBML information standard and which has exceeded the 500-citation milestone appeared in the journal Bioinformatics in 2003 and is entitled "The systems biology markup language (SBML): a medium for representation and exchange of biochemical network models."

Michael Hucka, a Senior Research Fellow at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in Pasadena, and first author of the paper, has chaired the SBML Editors and SBML Team by community consensus since 2003. Today he works on all aspects of SBML and is involved with BioModels.net <http://biomodels.net/> consortium efforts such as the BioModels Database <http://www.ebi.ac.uk/biomodels>. Said Hucka, "We're all really pleased by this outcome. The number of citations for our original paper is a validation of the usefulness of the SBML language to the scientific community. The development of SBML continues at pace thanks to the efforts of both a team of dedicated developers and an international community of volu
