Pattern for Local Unique Identifiers

Local identifiers in BioSystems should match this regular expression:

Example Local Unique Identifier

Pattern for CURIES

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

Example CURIE
2009 The NCBI BioSystems database.
Metaregistry BioSystems

The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are 6 mappings to external registries for biosystems with 3 unique external prefixes.

Registry Name Registry Metaprefix External Prefix Curate
BioContext biocontext BIOSYSTEMS
FAIRSharing FAIRSharing logo fairsharing FAIRsharing.w2eeqr logo miriam biosystems
N2T Name-to-Thing logo n2t biosystems
Prefix Commons Prefix Commons logo prefixcommons biosystems
re3data Registry of Research Data Repositories logo re3data r3d100011033

Providers are various services that resolve CURIEs to URLs. The example CURIE biosystems:001 is used to demonstrate the provides available for biosystems. Generation of OLS and BioPortal URLs requires additional programmatic logic beyond string formatting.
