Pattern for Local Unique Identifiers

Local identifiers in Environment Ontology should match this regular expression:
^\d{7,8}$

Example Local Unique Identifier
09200010   Resolve
Pattern for CURIES

Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from Environment Ontology should match this regular expression:
^ENVO:\d{7,8}$

Example CURIE
ENVO:09200010
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 ENVO:. Therefore, you might see local unique identifiers written out as CURIEs.
