Repeated CRISPR ("clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats") elements found in archaebacteria and eubacteria are believed to defend against viral infection, potentially targeting invading DNA for degradation. CRISPRdb is a database that stores information on CRISPRs that are automatically extracted from newly released genome sequence data.

Pattern for Local Unique Identifiers

Local identifiers in CRISPRdb should match this regular expression:

Example Local Unique Identifier
551115   Resolve
Pattern for CURIES

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

Example CURIE
Metaregistry CRISPRdb

The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are 5 mappings to external registries for this resource with 3 unique external prefixes.

Registry Name Registry Metaprefix External Prefix Curate
BioContext biocontext CRISPRDB

Integbio Integbio logo integbio nbdc02213 logo miriam crisprdb
N2T Name-to-Thing logo n2t crisprdb

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 551115 is used to demonstrate the providers available for CRISPRdb. A guide for curating additional providers can be found here.

Name Metaprefix URI
