Searching and getting data from BioModels Database

Searching BioModels Database

Quick search

Provides you with a list of models that contain any of your search terms in the model components, annotation, or additional information. This option is comprehensive but can return false-positive results.

Advanced search

Allows you to refine your search. You can combine several elementary searches on the model components, using accession numbers of the data resources used for annotation. For some data resources you can also search using text, for example names, synonyms or definitions.

Downloading models from BioModels Database

Models can be retrieved in various formats: SBML, BioPAX and VCML, but also as configuration files for various simulators such as XPPAUT, Octave and SciLab. The reaction graphs can be downloaded in SVG and PNG formats (following the SBGN standard, Figure 2). The models can also be viewed as a downloadable PDF format.
