Reactome: A Curated Pathway Database

SBGN – A Survey of Pathway Diagrams

Posted on April 26th, 2013, by robinhaw, under Community News

Could you spend a little time to complete a short survey about Biological Pathway diagrams?

For a number of years now a community of like minded Systems Biologists have been developing a graphical notation that aims to systematically and unambiguously draw biological pathways. Our aim has been to permit the exchange of pathway information graphically without the need for supporting text. We call this standard the Systems Biology Graphical Notation (SBGN). You can find out more at

We would like to understand how widely SBGN is used and whether the notation meets your needs and so we have developed our survey.

It would be of great assistance to us if you could complete the survey by following the link below. It will only take about 10 minutes of your time.

Kind regards,

The SBGN Editorial Board.

Reactome will be taking part in Google Summer of Code 2013

Posted on April 8th, 2013, by robinhaw, under Reactome Announcement

The Genome Informatics group, organizing the joint efforts of Galaxy, GBrowse, Generic Model Organism Database (GMOD), JBrowse, Reactome, Wormbase, PortEco and SeqWare will be participating in the Google Summer of Code 2013. Here is the complete list of the accepted organizations, chosen by Google to take part in this exciting program. This is a great opportunity for undergraduate students to contribute to the work of these bioinformatics projects, to participate in open source development, and to do work related to their academic pursuits during the summer. Students wishing to apply for Google Summer of Code will have the next two weeks to learn more about the accepted projects before student applications open on Monday, April 22 at 19:00 UTC. More information about the project ideas and the GSoC program is available on the GMOD website. If you have any questions or queries, please feel free to send a post to the Genome Informatics Google Groups.
