Welcome to the PharmML website! PharmML stands for Pharmacometrics Markup Language - a new exchange format for encoding of models, associated tasks and their annotation as used in pharmacometrics. It is being developed by the DDMoRe consortium, an European Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI) project.
The lack of a common format which would allow for a smooth exchange of models between different software tools used in population pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics such as NONMEM, Monolix or BUGS has been a longstanding problem in the field. PharmML is being developed to become such standard.
The relationships of distributions supported by ProbOnto 1.0 - Ontology and Knowledge Base of Probability Distributions - see project website probonto.org for more details. PharmML makes use of ProbOnto facilitating greatly the encoding of a large family of statistical models.
