Additional file 7::

Expanded SBML map file of AlzPathway with Gene Ontology. The SBML map file alzpathway_sbml_map_go.xml is the expanded version of AlzPathway map (alzpathway_sbml_map.xml) having external links to Gene Ontology. The SBML map file with the external links to Gene Ontology requires time to be opened by CellDesigner 4.2, and thus was provided separately as an expanded SBML map.
