Invited talk at COMBINE 2019

The Physiome Model Repository (PMR) contains over 800 publicly available and version controlled workspaces. These primarily consist of published computational models encoded in the CellML format, some including descriptions of simulation experiments encoded in the SED-ML format. Here I will briefly introduce our recent efforts to curate and annotate these models with detailed biological semantics as well as some high-level workspace annotations. I will then demonstrate how these annotations can be utilised to improve the discovery and comprehension of models in the PMR and then how they aid the model building tasks. I will conclude with some thoughts on how models built in this manner can be verified against similarly annotated simulation experiments or experimental data.
