N2T Name-to-Thing logo n2t bioproject
re3data Registry of Research Data Repositories logo re3data r3d100013330
TogoID togoid Bioproject

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 PRJDB3 is used to demonstrate the providers available for BioProject. A guide for curating additional providers can be found here.

Bioregistry bioregistry miriam
Name-to-Thing n2t
Extra Providers

Additional providers curated in the Bioregistry are listed here. These are typically inherited from or Prefix Commons, and need extra curation.
