The following pages contain examples of BEL terms and BEL Statements. BEL Terms are used to represent biological entities including abundances and processes. These terms are used as the basis of BEL Statements that link one or more BEL Terms together with a relationship and/or additional context information to represent biological knowledge.
These examples are written in BEL Script format; see BEL Script V1.0 Format documentation for more information. For many of the examples, both the long form and the short form for each BEL Term or Statement are provided.
