Pattern for Local Unique Identifiers

Local identifiers in BioAssay Ontology should match this regular expression:

Example Local Unique Identifier
0002989   Resolve
Pattern for CURIES

Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from BioAssay Ontology should match this regular expression:

Example CURIE
Metaregistry BioAssay Ontology

The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are 8 mappings to external registries for this resource with 2 unique external prefixes.

A provider turns a local unique identifiers from a resource into a URI. Many providers are also resolvable as URLs (i.e., they can be used in a web browser).

The local unique identifier 0002989 is used to demonstrate the providers available for BioAssay Ontology. A guide for curating additional providers can be found here.
