DDMoRe Foundation: http://www.ddmore.foundation The Drug Disease Model Resources (DDMoRe) Foundation maintains and drives development of a universally applicable, open source, model based framework, intended as the gold standard for future collaborative drug and disease Modelling & Simulation. Work is performed by the following Community Groups:
- The DDMoRe Model Repository provides a community-driven, fully-searchable hub for storing published and unpublished pharmacometric models.
- The DDMoRe Language Community provides a resource for encoding models with MDL, helps with understanding MDL structure and features, and provides a place for logging bugs, issues, feature requests and suggestions.
- The DDMoRe Thoughtflow Community maintains the Thoughtflow provenance standard for recording, storing and reporting the results of pharmacometric analyses, and drives its implementation in software.
