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)

Pattern for Local Unique Identifiers

Local identifiers in Influenza Ontology should match this regular expression:

Example Local Unique Identifier
0000404   Resolve
Pattern for CURIES

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

Example CURIE
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.

Registry Name Registry Metaprefix External Prefix Curate
AberOWL aberowl FLU
BioContext biocontext FLU
BioPortal Prefixes bioportal FLU
OBO Foundry OBO Foundry logo obofoundry flu

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.
