ready CellML

General Information
CellML language is an open standard based on the XML markup language. CellML is being developed by the Auckland Bioengineering Institute at the University of Auckland and affiliated research groups. The purpose of CellML is to store and exchange computer-based mathematical models. CellML allows scientists to share models even if they are using different model-building software. It also enables them to reuse components from one model in another, thus accelerating model building.

Related Databases (3)
BioModels is a repository of computational models of biological processes. It allows users to search and retrieve mathematical models published in the literature. Many models are manually curated (to ensure reproducibility) and extensively cross-linked to publicly available reference information.

Experimental data repository for KInetic MOdels of biological SYStems
KiMoSys is a user-friendly platform that includes a public data repository of relevant published measurements, including metabolite concentrations (time-series and steady-state), flux data, and enzyme measurements in order to build ODE-based kinetic model. It is designed to search, exchange and disseminate experimental data (and associated kinetic models) for the systems modeling community.

Physiome Model Repository
The Physiome Model Repository (PMR) is the main online repository for the IUPS Physiome Project, providing version and access controlled repositories, called workspaces, for users to store their data. PMR also provides a mechanism to create persistent access to specific revisions of a workspace, termed exposures. Exposure plugins are available for specific types of data (e.g., CellML or FieldML documents) which enable customizable views of the data when browsing the repository via a web browser, or an application accessing the repository’s content via web services.
