Pattern for CURIES

Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from HGNC Symbol 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 hgnc.symbol.

Registry Name Metaprefix External Prefix miriam hgnc.symbol
Name-to-Thing n2t hgnc.symbol
Prefix Commons prefixcommons HGNC.SYMBOL

Providers are various services that resolve CURIEs to URLs. The example CURIE hgnc.symbol:DAPK1 is used to demonstrate the provides available for hgnc.symbol. Generation of OLS and BioPortal URLs requires additional programmatic logic beyond string formatting.
