SbmlViewer is a tool for fast and easy reading biological models written in SBML format. It allows looking through model components and equations even if you have no modeling software installed. It is as simple as reading a web page in your web browser.
SbmlViewer never uploads your files to the server and all transformations are performed locally in your browser, so it is safe and secure for your code.
SbmlViewer is helpful when:
- You need to share your model in human readable and compact format with someone.
- You cannot install you favorite tool to read and check some SBML file right now.
- Your software cannot read some specific SBML versions or elements like
functionDefinitionetc. but the file includes them.
- Your have some errors when importing SBML and are trying to check the model code.
For models from your computer:
- Open the page http://sv.insysbio.com/online
- Drug’n’drop your SBML or click on button “Choose file” and select your sbml model.
For models shared on web:
- Copy the link of your shared model, for instance http://www.example.com/your_sbml_file.xml
- Add the external SBML path to SbmlViewer url followed by ? sign, like this:
- The full url above can be shared, sent or embedded to web page if you wish.
To look through example just try the links

- reading SBML Level 2 Version 1-5
- reading SBML Level 3 Version 1-2
- creating tabular view of model with: sbml2table or sbml3table transformation
- summary generation for chosen element: sbml2element transformation
- generation of ODE system based on your model: sbml2math or sbml3math transformation
- supports specific SBML format generated by simbiology by transforming MathML and using name instead of id, see options
- Support printing whole document to page or pdf:
Ctrl + P

SBML is a free and open interchange format for computer models of biological processes maintained by SBML community. It is used in many modeling application and can store model structure, math and annotation of elements. SBML is XML based format and designed basically for machine reading and writing.
