Biochemical Modeling with Systems Biology Graphical Notation

A. Jansson, M. Jirstrand. Drug Discovery Today, May 2010, 15(9-10), 365-370.

The Systems Biology Graphical Notation (SBGN) is an emerging standard for graphical notation developed by an international systems biology community. Standardized graphical notation is crucial for efficient and accurate communication of biological knowledge between researchers with various backgrounds in the expanding field of systems biology. Here, we highlight SBGN from a practical point of view and describe how the user can build and simulate SBGN models from a simple drag-and-drop graphical user interface in PathwayLab.
