|Principle||The Import method attempts to upload a user-supplied GEM
and map it on the MNXref namespace.
An importation report is created that documents the encountered difficulties during the mapping.|
Various input formats are supported, including all those produced by MetaNetX. Various flavours of the SMBL format are supported, including some idiosyncratic usages of the SBML notes. The use of SBML compliant with the 3.1 specifications is however strongly recommended.
|Format||The syntax for text files is given in the model internals documentation.|
Regarding the SBML file, it is strongly recommended to supply cross references using Identifiers.org-compliant annotations.
|Mapping||The following identifiers are recognized and mapped to the MNXref namespace
|General advice||Since, metabolic networks are complex objects combining biochemical, genetic, and genomic information, we recommend new MetaNetX users to practice the following steps
|Disclaimer||MetaNetX is not responsible for malformed file or syntax errors and will not offer user support on these issues.|
We are unfortunately aware that some public genome-scale metabolic networks distributed in SBML format are not 100% compliant with the SBML specifications; or with our editorial choices. As a consequence, their import might be problematic. We recommend checking if a version of such model already exists in the MetaNetX repository.
