Warning: Editing this page will change the examples shown on query.wikidata.org

This page is parsed by the web interface of the query service to fill the query example dialog. Many of the examples also work in template:Wikidata list template calls parsed by the Listerbot, which however requires the ?item field variable to be selected.

Consider adding a comment in the query noting what it illustrates, when and by whom it was written and which are its limitations given the current data and use of properties at Wikidata.

Some queries did not fit here because of technical restrictions:

Humans without children

In the simplest form:

The following query uses these:

An equivalent query (slightly more verbose):

SELECT ?human ?humanLabel 
WHERE

Metabolite-metabolite interactions (mostly conversions) and their pKa change

Federated query using the WikiPathways SPARQL endpoint to retrieve interaction information. The dimensions plot show the pKa changes during metabolite-metabolite interaction. It must be noted here that many very basic or very acidic are reported in pathways as the uncharged structure, whereas in normal biological pathways these compounds are charged and then have quite different pKa charges.
