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.
Local identifiers in HGNC gene family should match this
Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from HGNC gene family should match
this regular expression:
The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are
3 mappings to external registries for
1 unique external prefixes.
|Registry Name||Metaprefix||External Prefix|
Providers are various services that resolve CURIEs to URLs. The example CURIE
is used to demonstrate the provides available for
hgnc.genefamily. Generation of OLS and BioPortal URLs requires additional programmatic
logic beyond string formatting.
