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 7 mappings to external registries for bao.

Registry Name Metaprefix External Prefix
BioPortal Prefixes bioportal BAO
FAIRSharing FAIRSharing logo fairsharing FAIRsharing.mye76w logo miriam bao
Name-to-Thing Name-to-Thing logo n2t bao
Ontology Lookup Service Ontology Lookup Service logo ols bao
OntoBee ontobee BAO
Prefix Commons prefixcommons BAO

Providers are various services that resolve CURIEs to URLs. The example CURIE bao:0002989 is used to demonstrate the provides available for bao. Generation of OLS and BioPortal URLs requires additional programmatic logic beyond string formatting.
