The HGNC (HUGO Gene Nomenclature Committee) provides an approved gene name and symbol (short-form abbreviation) for each known human gene. All approved symbols are stored in the HGNC database, and each symbol is unique. HGNC identifiers refer to records in the HGNC symbol database.

Pattern for CURIES

Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from HUGO Gene Nomenclature Committee should match this regular expression:

Example CURIE
Metaregistry HUGO Gene Nomenclature Committee

The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are 14 mappings to external registries for hgnc with 6 unique external prefixes.
