Each BEL Statement can optionally be annotated to express knowledge about the statement itself. Some important uses of annotations are to specify information about the:

  • biological system in which the observation represented by the statement was made
  • experimental methods used to demonstrate the observation
  • knowledge source on which the statement is based, such as the citation and specific text supporting the statement

Examples of annotations that could be associated with a BEL Statement are the:

  • PubMed ID specifying the publication in which the observation was reported,
  • Species, tissue, and cellular location in which the observations were made, and
  • Dosage, exposure and recovery time associated with the observation.
  • No labels
