Data Formats for Systems Biology and Quantitative Modeling

Data standards support the reliable exchange of information, the interoperability of tools, and the reproducibility of scientific results. In systems biology standards are agreed ways of structuring, describing, and associating models and data, as well as their respective parts, graphical visualization, and information about applied experimental or computational methods. Such standards also assist with describing how constituent parts interact together, or are linked, and how they are embedded in their environmental and experimental context. Here the focus will be on standards for formatting models and their content, and on metadata checklists and ontologies that support modeling.
