Repositories support the reuse of models and ensure transparency about results in publications linked to those models. With thousands of models available in repositories, such as the BioModels database or the Physiome Model Repository, a framework to track the differences between models and their versions is essential to compare and combine models. Difference detection allows users to study the history of models but also helps in the detection of errors and inconsistencies. Existing repositories lack algorithms to track a model’s development over time.
