InterLex is a dynamic lexicon, initially built on the foundation of NeuroLex (PMID: 24009581), of biomedical terms and common data elements designed to help improve the way that biomedical scientists communicate about their data, so that information systems can find data more easily and provide more powerful means of integrating data across distributed resources and datasets. InterLex allows for the association of data fields and data values to common data elements and terminologies enabling the crowdsourcing of data-terminology mappings within and across communities. InterLex provides a stable layer on top of the many other existing terminologies, lexicons, ontologies, and common data element collections and provides a set of inter-lexical and inter-data-lexical mappings.
The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are

Providers are various services that resolve CURIEs to URLs. The example CURIE
interlex:0101963 is used to demonstrate the provides available for
interlex. Generation of OLS and BioPortal URLs requires additional programmatic
logic beyond string formatting.
