Logo for Human Phenotype Ontology 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 annotates the namespaceEmbeddedInLUI as true. This means that you may see local unique identifiers that include a redundant prefix and delimiter (also known as a banana) and therefore look like a CURIE. For Human Phenotype Ontology, the banana looks like HP:. Therefore, you may see local unique identifiers for this resource that look like HP:0011140 (instead of the canonical form 0011140) and CURIEs for this resource that look like HP:HP:0011140 (instead of the canonical form HP:0011140). The Bioregistry will automatically strip off the banana when standardizing local unique identifiers and CURIEs.

A summary of the relations in the Bioregistry schema can be found here.
