New Visual Search


SABIO-RK now offers a new visualization of search results including the modification of the search. Please feel free to test it and give us your feedback using the Feedback button!

The new visual search (beta test version) gives an overview about the distribution of search results within organisms and tissues. Additionally parameter types and kinetic laws are displayed.

Talk on SABIO-RK at VPH2012


SABIO-RK will be presented in a talk at the VPH Conferences (VPH 2012) taking place in London (UK) on 18 – 20 September 2012.
VPH 2012 - INTEGRATIVE APPROACHES TO COMPUTATIONAL BIOMEDICINE ( is organized by the Virtual Physiological Human Network of Excellence (VPH NoE). The Virtual Physiological Human Network of Excellence is an umbrella project representing the Virtual Physiological Human Initiative set up by the European Commission. VPH 2012 is an international conference on computational biomedicine, with a clear focus on the integrative aspects of the Virtual Physiological Human (VPH).

SABIO-RK tutorial at ICSB2012


SABIO-RK will be presented at the International Conference on Systems Biology (ICSB) on August 19, 2012, 9:00 am - 2:30 pm as part of the tutorial Modelling and Simulation of Quantitative Biological Models

The tutorial will take place at the Donnelly Centre for Cellular and Biomolecular Research (CCBR) of the University of Toronto, Canada. The participation is free of charge.

Participants will learn setting-up quantitative computer models of biological networks using experimental kinetic data and simulating them in different systems biology platforms. Hands-on sessions, lectures and software demonstrations will be included providing attendees with the necessary skills to enable them to access experimental kinetics data from SABIO-RK, assembling computer models with these data and finally simulating the models within different tools like COPASI, CellDesigner, JWS online or Virtual Cell.

Target audience

Modellers and experimentalists with some basic experience in modelling and simulation of biological networks.

Web Services - User Survey


We are always trying to improve the SABIO-RK web services. To get an overview about used methods and the needs of our web service users we prepared a short user survey which we would like to ask you to fill in.
Click to start the survey!

For your information: we are planning to close the SOAP web services probably by end of the year 2012. So we especially need to know who is using which methods of the SOAP web services and how these can be replaced by the RESTful web services.

Thank you for your help!
