Editors

BioPAX Editors have a similar remit to those in other standards, mainly working with the community to motivate and expedite discussions. Major decisions on specifications are not made by editors, but rather by voting from the entire community. Editors collect all the opinions, present them to the community for discussion, and then put them on a ballot for the community to vote.

Editors are elected by the community for 3-year terms as volunteers. There is no limit on the number of terms one can serve as an editor.

In September 2010 the community voted in 3 BioPAX editors, Peter D'Eustachio, Oliver Ruebenacker and Andrea Splendiani.

In December 2011, two more editors were elected, Emek Demir and Huaiyu Mi.

Editors can be contacted through biopax-editors @ googlegroups.com e-mail address.
