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 CURIES

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

Example CURIE

The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are 3 mappings to external registries for crisprdb.

Registry Name Metaprefix External Prefix miriam crisprdb
Name-to-Thing n2t crisprdb
Prefix Commons prefixcommons CRISPRDB

Providers are various services that resolve CURIEs to URLs. The example CURIE crisprdb:551115 is used to demonstrate the provides available for crisprdb. Generation of OLS and BioPortal URLs requires additional programmatic logic beyond string formatting.
