We investigate the generation, characterization and measurement of non-classical correlations and entanglement in ultracold atomic gases. Specifically, we propose new tests to demonstrate non-classical correlations, Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) entanglement and Bell inequality violations, in systems involving dilute gas Bose-Einstein condensates (BECs). We focus on the challenges of generating and preserving these correlations in atom-optics schemes with massive particles and define
