The mission of the BioPathways Consortium
is to catalyze the emergence and development of computational pathways biology,
by building up a strong and coherent scientific community, sharing knowledge,
facilitating collaborations, and fostering the development of methods and
tools of wide interest to the community.
One of the main components of the
Consortium's mission is thus to support and coordinate the development and
use of open technologies, standards, and resources for representing, handling,
accessing, analyzing, and adding value to pathways information.
