27th BioModels Database Release

Hinxton, Friday 11th April 2014

We are proud to announce the 27th release of BioModels Database, in which we reached a new landmark of over 500 curated models!

500 curated models mark

BioModels Database now publicly provides access to 144,253 models. This corresponds to 1,183 models published in the literature and 143,070 models automatically generated from pathway resources.

Within the complete set of models supplied, over 500 models have been manually curated. Those models are fully MIRIAM compliant. This means that they have been thoroughly checked and annotated, and when instantiated in a simulation, they reproduce the results described in their reference paper. So congratulations to all the curators having been part of the team over the years!


The Path2Models branch of the repository, and more specially the non-metabolic sub-branch, now hosts models which were automatically generated from the Pathway Interaction Database.

We would be grateful if you could cite the relevant publications (Büchel, et al. 2013 and Büchel, et al. 2012) if you are using any model from the Path2Models branch.

Finally, BioModels Database now has a new logo:

Feel free to use it in your websites, presentations and posters (a large version is also available). We hope you like it!


All the models of this release are provided in the following archives from our FTP server:
