ready Pharmacometrics Markup Language

Abbreviation: PharmML

General Information
PharmML is an exchange format for non-linear mixed effect models used in pharmacometrics and provides means to encode models, trial designs, and modelling steps. This standard allows for a smooth exchange of models between different software tools used in population pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics.

Ontology and Knowledge Base of Probability Distributions
ProbOnto, is an ontology-based knowledge base of probability distributions, featuring more than 150 uni- and multivariate distributions with their defining functions, characteristics, relationships and re-parameterization formulas. It can be used for model annotation and facilitates the encoding of distribution-based models, related functions and quantities. ProbOnto is both an ontology and a knowledge base, however its primary focus is the knowledge base.
