Meeting report from the first meetings of the Computational Modeling in Biology Network (COMBINE)


The Computational Modeling in Biology Network (COMBINE, http://co.mbine.org/), an initiative whose goal is to coordinate the development of the various community standards and formats in computational systems biology and related fields. This report summarises the activities pursued at the first annual COMBINE meeting held in Edinburgh on October 6-9 2010 and the first HARMONY hackathons, held in New-York on April 18-22 2011. The first of those meetings hosted 81 attendees, and discussions covered not only the standards part of COMBINE such as BioPAX, SBGN and SBML, but emerging efforts and interoperability between the different formats. The second meeting, oriented towards developers, welcomed 59 participants and witnessed many technical discussions and development enhancing software support of the standards, and conversion between them. Both meetings were resounding successes and showed that the field is now mature enough to develop representation formats and related standards in a coordinated manner.
