SBML.org — the global portal for all things SBML

Wiki

Contents

This is the top page for the SBML wiki area on SBML.org. It serves as a community-maintained resource. The wiki is suitable for long explanations, documents, proposals, etc., while the forums are more suitable for rapid discussion and exchange.

Much of the information on this page may not make sense without some knowledge of the SBML specification. Some other questions may be answered in the SBML FAQ. If you have any suggestions or questions, please don't hesitate to mention them on one of the mailing lists or by contacting sbml-team@caltech.edu.

SBML Level 3

SBML Level 3 is modular, in the sense of having a defined core set of features and optional packages adding features on top of the core. This modular approach means that models can declare which feature-sets they use, and likewise, software tools can inform users about the packages they support.

SBML Level 3 Status Summary Table

The status of package efforts is now listed in a new set of packages oriented to the specifications rather than the proposals.

Each individual SBML Level 3 package effort has its own separate status page. Please follow the relevant links in the table below to find out more about a given package, including any draft specifications that may be available. This list is in alphabetical order by package label. The information in this table is drawn from the master table for Level 3 package statuses maintained as a Google Docs spreadsheet.

Miscellaneous

The following content came from older versions of the SBML.org website, with some modifications and updates done more recently as people have had time and noticed things. Some of the content is not relevant anymore thanks to more recent versions of SBML, but they're kept around for nostalgia and historical reference.
