Frederick Sanger

Aged 95, Frederick Sanger passed away on Tuesday, November 19, 2013. He is to date the only person to be awarded two times the Nobel prize in Chemistry: in 1958 “for his work on the structure of proteins, especially that of insulin” and in 1980 “for their contributions concerning the determination of base sequences in nucleic acids”. He is remembered for his modest personality -he declined a knighthood because he was afraid it would interfere with his work– and for having revolutionized the field of Molecular Biology.

Modeling pathways

Path2Model workflow

The Path2Models project generated over 140,000 models from pathway databases such as KEGG, BioCarta, MetaCyc and SABIO-RK. These models are expected to ease model creation, especially in fields such as genomics and metagenomics. The models are encoded in SBML and can be further tested and corrected.
