  2. 2. Research Objects in the wild: COMBINE archives (.omex)  Open Modelling Exchange Format for tools used in System Biology  Specializations: SED-ML, SBML, CellML, NeuroML, PharmML  Reusable representation of biological model and its dependency resources  All bundled within archive  Format specified per resource  Graceful degradation – applications can open the sub-models which format they support  Master file – indicate a top-level model  Includes provenance/metadata (who made each sub-model)  Java API:
  3. 3. Research Object Bundle (  Downloadable research object, transfer & publish  Citable DOI, publish at straight from GitHub  ZIP file, can be unpacked with regular tools  Reserved folders: .ro/ and META-INF/  Programmatic access  JSON manifest also interpretable as Linked Data  Provenance of bundle and resources (W3C PROV-O and PAV)  Annotations using Open Annotation Model (W3C Community Group)  RO Bundle API  Works offline and in desktop applications  Basis for more specific file formats, e.g. Taverna run bundle  Exchanged with myExperiment and Research Object tools doi:10.5281/zenodo.10440
  4. 4. Combining COMBINE and RO: ro-combine-archive  Parsing COMBINE manifest.xml, adding RO Bundle .ro/manifest.json  Manifests can co-exist: File is both COMBINE archive and RO Bundle  Extracts provenance metadata to enrich RO Bundle  RO Bundle standardizes provenance relations like:  authoredBy, createdOn, curatedBy, aggregatedBy  Future:  Embed into RO Bundle API – any RO Bundle could become COMBINE  Joining effort with COMBINE API developer doi:10.5281/zenodo.10439
