Hinxton, tuesday 25th September 2007

We are pleased to announce the ninth release of BioModels Database.

This new release sees the the addition of 47 models, 38 entering the curated branch. That brings the public version of BioModels Database to 12482 reactions. As usual, a significant portion of the annotation of existing models has also been uptated. The database now features 7985 cross-references.

Many methods have been added to BioModels Dababase WebServices. You can now retrieve the models using ChEBI, GO, UniProt and Taxonomy information. We welcome any suggestion for new services.

BioModels Database is developed by the teams of Nicolas Le Novère (EMBL-EBI, United-Kingdom) and Michael Hucka (SBML Team, Caltech, USA) in collaboration with Upinder Bhalla (DOQCS, National Center for Biological Sciences, India), Herbert Sauro (Keck Graduate Institute, USA), Hiroaki Kitano (Systems Biology Institute, Japan), Hans Westerhoff and Jacky Snoep (JWS Online, Stellenbosch (ZA) and Manchester (UK) Universities and Stellenbosh University, ZA), as part of the initiative. BioModels Database development has benefitted from funds of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (Le Novère team), the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (SBML team and Le Novère team), and the DARPA (Sauro team).

Model curators and annotators: Harish Dharuri, Enuo He, Nicolas Le Novère, Lu Li, Rainer Machne, Bruce Shapiro (Alumni: Maria Schilstra)

External contributors: BioModels Database would not exists without the continuous support of many people, whether by their contribution of models, of software, or by their constructive comments and criticisms. It is unfortunately impossible to acknowledge all of them here, without risking to be unfair. Therefore, a big collective thank-you all.

BioModels Database is built thanks to many third-party free software such as libSBML, Jakarta Tomcat, Xindice, Lucene, Xalan, Xerces, Axis, Jena and MySQL, plus all the free software coming with the GNU/Linux systems.

Main software used to curate models: CellDesigner, COPASI, Jarnac, MathSBML, RoadRunner, SBMLdeSolver, SBMLeditor, SBMLmerge and XPP-Aut.
