- DEPRECATION NOTE - Please, keep in mind that this namespace has been superseeded by ‘gold’ prefix at https://registry.identifiers.org/registry/gold, and this namespace is kept here for support to already existing citations, new ones would need to use the pointed ‘gold’ namespace. The GOLD (Genomes OnLine Database)is a resource for centralized monitoring of genome and metagenome projects worldwide. It stores information on complete and ongoing projects, along with their associated metadata. This collection references metadata associated with samples.

Pattern for Local Unique Identifiers

Local identifiers in GOLD metadata should match this regular expression:

Example Local Unique Identifier
Gm00047   Resolve
Pattern for CURIES

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

Example CURIE

The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are 3 mappings to external registries for gold.meta.

Registry Name Metaprefix External Prefix
Identifiers.org miriam gold.meta
Name-to-Thing n2t gold.meta
Prefix Commons prefixcommons GOLD.META

Providers are various services that resolve CURIEs to URLs. The example CURIE gold.meta:Gm00047 is used to demonstrate the provides available for gold.meta. Generation of OLS and BioPortal URLs requires additional programmatic logic beyond string formatting.
