ready Systems Biology Graphical Notation

Abbreviation: SBGN

General Information
The Systems Biology Graphical Notation (SBGN) project is an effort to standardize the graphical notation used in maps of biological processes. The mission of SBGN project is to develop high quality, standard graphical languages for representing biological processes and interactions. Each SBGN language is based on the consensus of the broad international SBGN community of biologists, curators and software developers.

Related Databases (7)
MetaCrop 2.0
The MetaCrop resource contains information on the major metabolic pathways mainly in crops of agricultural and economic importance. The database includes manually curated information on reactions and the kinetic data associated with these reactions. Ontology terms are used and publication identification available to ease mining the data.

Integrated Pathway Analysis and Visualization System
iPAVS provides a collection of highly-structured manually curated human pathway data, it also integrates biological pathway information from several public databases and provides several tools to manipulate, filter, browse, search, analyze, visualize and compare the integrated pathway resources.

Collaborative resource for the Bacillus community.

Termini-Oriented Protein Function INferred Database
The Termini-Oriented Protein Function INferred Database (TopFIND) is an integrated knowledgebase focused on protein termini, their formation by proteases and functional implications. It contains information about the processing and the processing state of proteins and functional implications thereof derived from research literature, contributions by the scientific community and biological databases.

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.

Reactome - a curated knowledgebase of biological pathways
The cornerstone of Reactome is a freely available, open source relational database of signaling and metabolic molecules and their relations organized into biological pathways and processes. The core unit of the Reactome data model is the reaction. Entities (nucleic acids, proteins, complexes, vaccines, anti-cancer therapeutics and small molecules) participating in reactions form a network of biological interactions and are grouped into pathways. Examples of biological pathways in Reactome include classical intermediary metabolism, signaling, transcriptional regulation, apoptosis and disease. Inferred orthologous reactions are available for 15 non-human species including mouse, rat, chicken, zebrafish, worm, fly, and yeast.

PathBank is an interactive, visual database containing more than 100 000 machine-readable pathways found in model organisms such as humans, mice, E. coli, yeast, and Arabidopsis thaliana. The majority of these pathways are not found in any other pathway database. PathBank is designed specifically to support pathway elucidation and pathway discovery in metabolomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, and systems biology. All PathBank pathways include information on the relevant organelles, subcellular compartments, protein complex cofactors, protein complex locations, metabolite locations, chemical structures, and protein complex quaternary structures. The database is easily browsed and supports full text, sequence, and chemical structure searching.
