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. In addition, HGNC also provides a unique numerical ID to identify gene families, providing a display of curated hierarchical relationships between families.

Example Local Unique Identifier
2029   Resolve
Pattern for CURIES

Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from HGNC gene family should match this regular expression:

Example CURIE

A summary of the relations in the Bioregistry schema can be found here.

Has URI collision with (bioregistry.schema:0000016 )

This resource shares one or more URI format strings with hgnc.genegroup .

Therefore, when generating an extended prefix map, hgnc.genefamily, its CURIE prefix synonyms, and its URI prefix synonyms are merged into the record for hgnc.genegroup . If you believe that these are two distinct semantic spaces and should not be merged, please open a new issue on the Bioregistry issue tracker for discussion.
