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 regular expression:

Example Local Unique Identifier
2029   Resolve
Pattern for CURIES

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

Example CURIE
Has Canonical
Metaregistry HGNC gene family

The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are 3 mappings to external registries for hgnc.genefamily with 1 unique external prefixes.

Registry Name Registry Metaprefix External Prefix Curate
BioContext biocontext HGNC.GENEFAMILY logo miriam hgnc.genefamily
Name-to-Thing Name-to-Thing logo n2t hgnc.genefamily

Providers are various services that resolve CURIEs to URLs. The example CURIE hgnc.genefamily:2029 is used to demonstrate the provides available for hgnc.genefamily. Generation of OLS and BioPortal URLs requires additional programmatic logic beyond string formatting.
