Hi Jonathan,

SBML (the Systems Biology Markup Language, http://www.sbml.org) uses 
content MathML for expressing the equations in its models of biological 
pathways (reactions, etc).   If you are happy to extract the equations 
from the rest of the SBML-XML, then you can get loads of models from 
http://www.ebi.ac.uk/biomodels-main/.   Ditto for CellML - 

We use content MathML for the equations in SimileXML (the XML format for 
Simile continuous-systems models, mainly used for ecological modelling: 
http://www.simulistics.com/).   You can see a collection of models at 
http://www.plasmo.ed.ac.uk/ - go to 'Browse Models' and look at those 
with Format: SimileXMLv3.   Some equations in these models will be 
rather more complex than those in the SBML/CellML collection, but still 
only the subset of MathML needed for representing algebraic 
expressions.   Again, you will have to extract the MathML from the 
SimileXML documents.
