A repository of standard virtual parts (SVPs) which are reusable, modular and composable models of physical biological parts. These models can be joined together computationally in order to facilitate the model-driven design of large-scale biological systems. Models are available in SBML and Kappa format. Genetic descriptions of parts can be retrieved using SBOL. The database is still under construction and being manually curated.
