Pattern for CURIES

Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from Ensembl gene ID should match this regular expression:

Example CURIE

The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are 7 mappings to external registries for ensembl.

Registry Name Metaprefix External Prefix
Gene Ontology Registry go ENSEMBL
Identifiers.org miriam ensembl
Name-to-Thing n2t ensembl
National Center for Biotechnology Information Registry ncbi ENSEMBL
