This page provides some SBGN-ML example files created with LibSBGN.

Examples 1 to 5 are based on the examples in the SBGN Process Description specification [1].


This example illustrates how SBGN can be used to describe metabolic pathways. [1]

Insulin-like Growth Factor (IGF) signalling

This example shows the use of compartments and how details can be hidden by using a submap. The submap is shown in the next example. [1]

MAPK cascade

A submap of the previous map showing the MAPK cascade. [1]

Central plant metabolism

This is the representation of major parts of the central metabolism in monocotyledon plants. The information has been derived from the MetaCrop [2] database, a manually curated repository of high quality information concerning the metabolism of crop plants. This includes pathways, reactions, locations, transport processes, and more.
