Adding MIRIAM annotations to biological data and models
Data and models in Systems Biology can come in various
resource annotations are a practical, standardised
way to connect the data or model elements with a biological
meaning (e.g., metabolites, proteins, genes). This is done by linking them to entries in public biological
databases, ontologies, or other web resources listed
in the MIRIAM
resources. In the SBML format for models, this is
already widely used.
The online service "Annotate Your
Model" helps you to add such annotations to biological
data and to models in non-SBML formats. This works as follows:
- Upload your data or model file.

You will be shown the list of elements to be annotated (i.e., the variables of a model or the
rows of a data table) and can add more elements by using the box "Add Elements".
After clicking an element in the list, you can add or edit its annnotations.
Once you have annotated your model, you can
export the annotations in a
