Registry Gene Ontology Database references

The GO reference collection is a set of abstracts that can be cited in the GO ontologies (e.g. as dbxrefs for term definitions) and annotation files (in the Reference column). It provides two types of reference; It can be used to provide details of why specific Evidence codes (see are assigned, or to present abstract-style descriptions of "GO content" meetings at which substantial changes in the ontologies are discussed and made.

Pattern for Local Unique Identifiers

Local identifiers in Gene Ontology Database references should match this regular expression:

Example Local Unique Identifier
0000041   Resolve
Pattern for CURIES

Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from Gene Ontology Database references should match this regular expression:

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

The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are 4 mappings to external registries for go.ref.

Registry Name Metaprefix External Prefix
Gene Ontology Registry go GO_REF miriam go_ref
Name-to-Thing n2t go.ref
Prefix Commons prefixcommons GO_REF

Providers are various services that resolve CURIEs to URLs. The example CURIE go.ref:0000041 is used to demonstrate the provides available for go.ref. Generation of OLS and BioPortal URLs requires additional programmatic logic beyond string formatting.
