This page describes the v1 Namespaces. For the most recent version, please see http://resource.belframework.org/belframework/latest-release/namespace/

 

The BEL Framework includes the following Namespaces.

Gene, RNA, and Protein Abundances

The following Namespaces provide standard vocabularies for designating gene, microRNA, RNA, and protein abundances. Values in the gene vocabularies can also be used to specify abundances of the corresponding RNA and protein coded for by the gene.

Entrez Gene – Identifiers
