Molecular Interaction Maps--A Diagrammatic Graphical
Language for Bioregulatory Networks
Sci. STKE, Vol. 2004, Issue 222, pp. pe8
Molecular interaction maps (MIMs) use a clear, accurate, and versatile graphical language to
depict complex biological processes. Here, we discuss the main features of the MIM language
and its potential uses. MIMs can be used as database resources and simulation guides, and can
serve to generate new hypotheses regarding the roles of specific molecules in the bioregulatory
networks that control progression through the cell cycle, differentiation, and cell death.
