Starting in the fall of 2007, a collaborative group of influenza researchers have established an influenza ontology. The influenza ontology is an application ontology. Consolidated influenza sequence and surveillance terms from resources such as the BioHealthBase (BHB), a Bioinformatics Resource Center (BRC) for Biodefense and Emerging and Re-emerging Infectious Diseases, the Centers for Excellence in Influenza Research and Surveillance (CEIRS)

Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from Influenza Ontology should match this regular expression:
^flu:\d{7}$

Example CURIE
flu:0000404
Metaregistry Influenza Ontology

The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are 4 mappings to external registries for flu with 1 unique external prefixes.

Providers

Providers are various services that resolve CURIEs to URLs. The example CURIE flu:0000404 is used to demonstrate the provides available for flu. Generation of OLS and BioPortal URLs requires additional programmatic logic beyond string formatting.
