Pattern for Local Unique Identifiers

Local identifiers in Evidence ontology should match this regular expression:
^\d{7}$

Example Local Unique Identifier
0007807   Resolve
Pattern for CURIES

Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from Evidence ontology should match this regular expression:
^ECO:\d{7}$

Example CURIE
ECO:0007807
MIRIAM Namespace Embedded in LUI
The legacy MIRIAM standard for generating CURIEs with this resource includes the namespaceEmbeddedInLUI as true. The actual part that gets prefixed before the local unique identifier regex, otherwise known as the banana, is ECO:. Therefore, you might see local unique identifiers written out as CURIEs.
