Repeated CRISPR ("clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats") elements found in archaebacteria and eubacteria are believed to defend against viral infection, potentially targeting invading DNA for degradation. CRISPRdb is a database that stores information on CRISPRs that are automatically extracted from newly released genome sequence data.
The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are
3 mappings to external registries for
Providers are various services that resolve CURIEs to URLs. The example CURIE
crisprdb:551115 is used to demonstrate the provides available for
crisprdb. Generation of OLS and BioPortal URLs requires additional programmatic
logic beyond string formatting.
