Welcome to the BioPAX Validator, we hope you enjoy your time on this auto-generated project site. We've tried to assemble some great user documentation and developer information, and we're really excited that you've taken the time to visit this site.

What is BioPAX

BioPAX is a community developed standard language for integration, exchange and analysis of biological pathway data. BioPAX is defined in Web Ontology Language (OWL) and can represent a broad spectrum of biological processes including metabolic and signaling pathways, molecular interactions and gene networks. Pathguide.org lists the pathway databases and tools that support BioPAX.

What is the BioPAX Validator

The BioPAX Validator is a command line tool, Java library, and online web service for BioPAX formatted pathway data validation. The validator checks for more than a hundred rules and best practices, provides human readable reports and can automatically fix some common mistakes in data. The validator is in use by the BioPAX community and is continuously being improved and expanded based on community feedback. It is open source and released under the LGPL v3 license. The latest stable version of the web application is available at http://www.biopax.org/validator.
