* after the conversion, a sub-page name became, e.g., "Page/SubPage", but the parent "Page" still refers to it as <nowiki>[[/SubPage]]</nowiki>. Therefore, this has to be changed manually to <nowiki>[[Page/SubPage]]</nowiki>

+
* list items: you may find some pages look ugly due to extra spaces before <nowiki>* or #</nowiki> or broken nested lists (must be <nowiki>*, **, ***, etc. or #, ##, ###,..</nowiki>)

BioPAX : Biological Pathways Exchange

BioPAX is a standard language that aims to enable integration, exchange, visualization and analysis of biological pathway data. Specifically, BioPAX supports data exchange between pathway data groups and thus reduces the complexity of interchange between data formats by providing an accepted standard format for pathway data. It is an open and collaborative effort by the community of researchers, software developers, and institutions. BioPAX is defined in OWL DL and is represented in the RDF/XML format. BioPAX Paper was published in Nature Biotechnology in 2010.
