First version of an SBGN language released

The first specification for Process Diagrams of the Systems Biology Graphical Notation (SBGN) is being announced today. The goal of SBGN is to standardise the graphical representation of essential biochemical and cellular processes. Standardising graphical notations for describing biological interactions is an important step towards the efficient communication of biological knowledge between different communities. More information on SBGN and SBGN Process Diagram Level 1 can be found here (http://www.sbgn.org/)...
