Taxonomic search. When a user's search is based on a taxonomic term, the BioModels Database search algorithm considers the entire taxonomic hierarchy. For example, searching for the term "mammalia" will catch not only models annotated with the term Mammalia, but also models annotated with terms related to it, such as Metazoa, Homo sapiens or Rattus norvegicus (represented in red in this figure).
