The semantic web and ontology communities are bound to the use of IRIs as identifiers and therefore are very
interested in the interconversion between compact identifiers (i.e., CURIEs) and IRIs. While the Bioregistry
provides many tools for one way conversion from CURIEs to IRIs, there are several related packages that help
parse CURIEs from IRIs:
The @geneontogy/dbxrefs Node.js package
translates CURIEs into URLs using the Gene Ontology Registry.
The curie-util-py Python package more generally
loads JSON-LD files to convert between IRIs and CURIEs.
The BioContext Python package generates URIs from
CURIEs based on information from the OBO Registry, Identifiers.org, the Gene Ontology Registry, and from the
Monarch Initiative. This package makes several assumptions about what the "correct" IRIs are in the
