Molecular interaction maps (MIMs) use a clear, accurate, and versatile graphical language to depict complex biological processes. Here, we discuss the main features of the MIM language and its potential uses. MIMs can be used as database resources and simulation guides, and can serve to generate new hypotheses regarding the roles of specific molecules in the bioregulatory networks that control progression through the cell cycle, differentiation, and cell death.
