As the number and size of biological knowledge resources for physiology grows, we need improved tools for searching and integrating knowledge and physiological models. Unfor- tunately, current resources are not always explicit about the biological semantics that they describe. Here, we present a formal approach that divides physiological knowledge into three partitions: structural knowledge, process knowledge and biophysical knowledge. We show how these are inter- related and present a PhysioMap, as a means to connect all three views.
