This project was funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung, BMBF) in the projects Virtual Liver, National Genome Research Network (Nationales Genomforschungsnetz, NGFN-Plus) and Spher4Sys, and supported by the Center for Bioinformatics Tübingen (Zentrum für Bioinformatik Tübingen, ZBIT). We are grateful to the developers of yFiles for providing an excellent library for working with graphs.

We want to say thank you to the Genomatix Team, especially Jochen Supper, for providing great input regarding the KGML2GraphML converter and for suporting converted files in their pathway system.
