ready Human Physiome Field Markup Language

Abbreviation: FieldML

General Information
FieldML is a declarative language for building hierarchical models represented by generalized mathematical fields. FieldML is developed as a data model and accompanying API. FieldML can be used to represent the dynamic 3D geometry and solution fields from computational models of cells, tissues and organs. It enables model interchange for the bioengineering and general engineering analysis communities. Example uses are models of tissue structure, the distribution of proteins and other biochemical compounds, anatomical annotation, and other biological annotation.

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.
