SBML funding and support

This page lists groups that have supported and funded SBML development in a direct capacity. Even more groups have supported SBML by developing compatible software, using SBML in their research, writing publications that use SBML, and promoting SBML’s use in other ways. It is truly a community effort!

Current SBML Funded Partners

The following groups were most recently supported directly for core SBML development via the main SBML grant from the US National Institute of General Medical Sciences.

Hucka Group

Past funded partners have been the Kitano group at the Systems Biology Institute (Japan), the Bolouri group at the University of Hertfordshire (UK), and the Brent group at the Molecular Sciences Institute (US).

Other SBML support

Many institutions have hosted SBML events, supported students working on SBML-related projects, and otherwise indirectly supported SBML over the years. Below are listed as many as we can identify. We apologize if we missed any—please notify us if you find any omissions.

Past SBML funding

We are deeply indebted to the many funding agencies and organizations that have provided funding for SBML in the past.

The core development of SBML from its inception through 2003 was principally funded by the Japan Science and Technology Agency under the ERATO Kitano Symbiotic Systems Project, with funding going to the group of John Doyle at Caltech. After 2003, primary direct support for the core development of SBML and supporting software and activities has come from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIH/NIGMS) under grants R01 GM070923 and R01GM077671. Additional support has come from the following agencies and programs: the National Human Genome Research Institute (USA), the International Joint Research Program of NEDO (Japan), the ERATO-SORST Program of the Japan Science and Technology Agency (Japan), the Ministry of Agriculture (Japan), the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (Japan), the BBSRC e-Science Initiative (UK), the DARPA IPTO Bio-Computation Program (USA), the Army Research Office’s Institute for Collaborative Biotechnologies (USA), the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (USA), the EU Commission 6th Framework Programme, the European Commision’s 7th Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF, Germany), the Virtual Liver Network, the Systems Biology Institute (Japan), and Google Summer of Code.
