Registry PRINTS compendium of protein fingerprints

PRINTS is a compendium of protein fingerprints. A fingerprint is a group of conserved motifs used to characterise a protein family; its diagnostic power is refined by iterative scanning of a SWISS-PROT/TrEMBL composite. Usually the motifs do not overlap, but are separated along a sequence, though they may be contiguous in 3D-space. Fingerprints can encode protein folds and functionalities more flexibly and powerfully than can single motifs, full diagnostic potency deriving from the mutual context provided by motif neighbours.

Providers are various services that resolve CURIEs to URLs. The example CURIE prints:PR00001 is used to demonstrate the provides available for prints. Generation of OLS and BioPortal URLs requires additional programmatic logic beyond string formatting.
