SBGN Viewer

With the SBGN Viewer, you can readily obtain an SBGN graphical representation for the model created with the CellDesigner.

CellDesigner’s SBGN Viewer adopts the SBGN Process Diagram Level 1 draft as of May 2008.

For Windows Users: Some functions may not work with the UAC (User Account Control) enabled. As of the time of beta release, the Convert to SBGN Viewer function fails in some Windows versions. In that case, please try again with the UAC disabled.

To view a model with the SBGN Viewer

  1. Open a model.
  2. On the View menu, select Convert to SBGN Viewer.
  3. On the Draw Area, a new diagram with the tag name [SBGNViewer] <original file name> opens.
