Information dimensions sorted by relevance. The information that is relevant for the characterisation of a bio- model's ranking is grouped into six different dimensions (dim). Each dimension has a different influence on the ranking. The least important dimension is the administrative data, the most important dimensions are the one encoding information about the model constituents and the one created from user generated contents.
