Pattern for Local Unique Identifiers

Local identifiers in HGNC gene symbol should match this regular expression:

Example Local Unique Identifier
DAPK1   Resolve
Pattern for CURIES

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

Example CURIE
Metaregistry HGNC gene symbol

The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are 4 mappings to external registries for hgnc.symbol with 2 unique external prefixes.

Registry Name Registry Metaprefix External Prefix Curate
BioContext biocontext HGNC.SYMBOL logo miriam hgnc.symbol
Name-to-Thing Name-to-Thing logo n2t hgnc.symbol
Wikidata Property Wikidata Property logo wikidata P353

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.
