Systems Biology Graphical Notation

The SBGN project is a free and open community effort aiming to develop high quality, standard graphical languages to represent biological processes and interactions.

The development of SBGN occurred during 2005-2008 with support from the Japanese New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO). Principle investigators were Hiroaki Kitano, Akira Funahashi, Nicolas Le Novere and Michael Hucka. Additional support has been provided by the OIST, BBSRC, EML Research GmbH, the Beckman Institute BNMC and NSF.

The visual languages covered by SBGN are Process Description, Entity Relationship and Activity Flow. The Process Description can show molecular interactions in a network of biochemical entities. The Entity Relationship language allows the visualization of influences of entities nodes on other relationships. The Activity Flow language shows the flow of information between biochemical entities in a network.
