Pattern for Local Unique Identifiers

Local identifiers in GeneCards should match this regular expression:

Example Local Unique Identifier
ABL1   Resolve
Pattern for CURIES

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

Example CURIE
Metaregistry GeneCards

The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are 8 mappings to external registries for this resource with 5 unique external prefixes.

Registry Name Registry Metaprefix External Prefix Curate
BioContext biocontext GENECARDS

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 ABL1 is used to demonstrate the providers available for GeneCards. 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.
