eggNOG (evolutionary genealogy of genes: Non-supervised Orthologous Groups) is a database of orthologous groups of genes. The orthologous groups are annotated with functional description lines (derived by identifying a common denominator for the genes based on their various annotations), with functional categories (i.e derived from the original COG/KOG categories).

Pattern for Local Unique Identifiers

Local identifiers in eggNOG should match this regular expression:

Example Local Unique Identifier
veNOG12876   Resolve
Pattern for CURIES

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

Example CURIE
Metaregistry eggNOG

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

Registry Name Registry Metaprefix External Prefix Curate
BioContext biocontext EGGNOG
FAIRSharing FAIRSharing logo fairsharing FAIRsharing.j1wj7d logo miriam eggnog
N2T Name-to-Thing logo n2t eggnog
Prefix Commons Prefix Commons logo prefixcommons eggnog
UniProt UniProt Cross-ref database logo uniprot DB-0152

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 veNOG12876 is used to demonstrate the providers available for eggNOG. A guide for curating additional providers can be found here.

Extra Providers

Additional providers curated in the Bioregistry are listed here. These are typically inherited from or Prefix Commons, and need extra curation.
