This is Example File 5, containing a .zip archive withe following structure:

  • example_advanced_map.xml - CellDesigner file with the main map
  • images - folder containing:
    • image files overview_main.png and overview_sub.png
    • coords.txt file containing relationships between the images and the content of the map
  • layouts - folder containing a text file example_upload_basic.txt
  • submaps - folder containing:
    • a submap CellDesigner file example_submap.xml
    • a mapping CellDesigner file mapping.xml
  1. Upload the Example File 5 to your MINERVA instance using Add project button
  2. Examine the upload window, note appearing of three additional tabs
  3. In the Overlays section, you can set the names of uploaded overlays
  4. Make sure that in the Submaps section proper checkboxes are checked for the Root map and the Mapping file
  5. In the Submaps you can change submap name and its type
  6. In the Images review contents of uploaded folder images


Examine the generated project. Please note that:

  • Images files
    • Show overview button is displayed, invoking one of the uploaded images
    • Links between the images and links directly to the map are configured
    • The link from Active area 3 invokes a search query, highlighting two interactions
  • Layout files: one selectable, predefined overlay in General overlays named Advanced example is available for non-registered users
  • Submap files
    • in the Submap tab, the uploaded example_submap is visible
    • in the Search tab, if you look for PRKN or SNCA, the results in both main map and the submap will be shown
    • contents of the example_submap are not annotated, as the example_submap.xml file elements are not annotated with relevant MIRIAM identifiers; even though SNCA elements are annotated in the main map, SNCA element in the submap is not annotated
    • upon switching to a custom coloring (Overlays tab) contents of the example_submap are colored as the contents of the main map
