The Cellosaurus is a knowledge resource on cell lines. It attempts to describe all cell lines used in biomedical research. Its scope includes: Immortalized cell lines; naturally immortal cell lines (example: stem cell lines); finite life cell lines when those are distributed and used widely; vertebrate cell line with an emphasis on human, mouse and rat cell lines; and invertebrate (insects and ticks) cell lines. Its scope does not include primary cell lines (with the exception of the finite life cell lines described above) and plant cell lines.
Local identifiers in Cellosaurus should match this
Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from Cellosaurus should match
this regular expression:
CVCL_. Therefore, you may see local unique identifiers for this resource that look like
CVCL_0440(instead of the canonical form
0440) and CURIEs for this resource that look like
cellosaurus:CVCL_0440(instead of the canonical form
cellosaurus:0440). The Bioregistry will automatically strip off the banana when standardizing local unique identifiers and CURIEs.
The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are
7 mappings to external registries for
4 unique external prefixes.
|Registry Name||Registry Metaprefix||External Prefix||Curate|
Providers are various services that resolve CURIEs to URLs. The example CURIE
is used to demonstrate the provides available for
cellosaurus. Generation of OLS and BioPortal URLs requires additional programmatic
logic beyond string formatting.
