The Human Phenotype Ontology (HPO) aims to provide a standardized vocabulary of phenotypic abnormalities encountered in human disease. Each term in the HPO describes a phenotypic abnormality, such as atrial septal defect. The HPO is currently being developed using the medical literature, Orphanet, DECIPHER, and OMIM.

Pattern for Local Unique Identifiers

Local identifiers in Human Phenotype Ontology should match this regular expression:

Example Local Unique Identifier
0011140   Resolve
Pattern for CURIES

Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from Human Phenotype Ontology should match this regular expression:

Example CURIE
MIRIAM Namespace Embedded in LUI
The legacy MIRIAM standard for generating CURIEs with this resource includes the namespaceEmbeddedInLUI as true. The actual part that gets prefixed before the local unique identifier regex, otherwise known as the banana, is HP:. Therefore, you might see local unique identifiers written out as CURIEs.
