OrthoDB presents a catalog of eukaryotic orthologous protein-coding genes across vertebrates, arthropods, and fungi. Orthology refers to the last common ancestor of the species under consideration, and thus OrthoDB explicitly delineates orthologs at each radiation along the species phylogeny. The database of orthologs presents available protein descriptors, together with Gene Ontology and InterPro attributes, which serve to provide general descriptive annotations of the orthologous groups
The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are
4 mappings to external registries for

Providers are various services that resolve CURIEs to URLs. The example CURIE
orthodb:Q9P0K8 is used to demonstrate the provides available for
orthodb. Generation of OLS and BioPortal URLs requires additional programmatic
logic beyond string formatting.
