Summary: An extension of the BlenX language with biological transactions, called TBlenX, is presented. The aim of this extension is to model a sequence of elementary actions as if it were atomic. This extension is useful when we need to specify multi-reactant multi-product reactions or when we use a sequence of actions to represent a biological interaction. Some properties of these transactions are discussed and some examples are reported to illustrate our extension.
