RESTful Web Services Introduction

RESTful Web Services are implemented offering data access via HTTP requests following a Representational State Transfer (REST) approach. Data can be accessed using simple http GET requests to either retrieve a complete SBML model, or a BioPAX/SBPAX3 representation of the requested entries, or pieces of information in a tailored format (in plain text or XML). Entries can be requested directly by using the database entry ID or can be searched for using the same format query built in user interface advanced search.
