SBML - The Language - Purposes

Purposes

SBML has three main purposes:

  • enabling the use of multiple software tools without having to rewrite models to conform to every tool's idiosyncratic file format;
  • enabling models to be shared and published in a form that other researchers can use even when working with different software environments;
  • ensuring the survival of models beyond the lifetime of the software used to create them.

SBML is not an attempt to define a universal language for quantitative models. SBML's purpose is to serve as a lingua franca—an exchange format used by different present-day software tools to communicate the essential aspects of a computational model.

Famous quotes containing the word purposes:

    It is not enough that we are truthful; we must cherish and carry out high purposes to be truthful about.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    [Girls] study under the paralyzing idea that their acquirements cannot be brought into practical use. They may subserve the purposes of promoting individual domestic pleasure and social enjoyment in conversation, but what are they in comparison with the grand stimulation of independence and self- reliance, of the capability of contributing to the comfort and happiness of those whom they love as their own souls?
    Sarah M. Grimke (1792–1873)

    Virtuous people are simply those who have ... not been tempted sufficiently, because they live in a vegetative state, or because their purposes are so concentrated in one direction that they have not had the leisure to glance around them.
    Isadora Duncan (1878–1927)
