The International Molecular Exchange (IMEx) is a consortium of molecular interaction databases which collaborate to share manual curation efforts and provide accessibility to multiple information sources.

Pattern for Local Unique Identifiers

Local identifiers in International Molecular Exchange should match this regular expression:

Example Local Unique Identifiers

Pattern for CURIES

Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from International Molecular Exchange should match this regular expression:

Example CURIEs
Namespace Embedded in LUI
This resource has been annotated by the Bioregistry as having a potential namespace embedded in LUI. 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 International Molecular Exchange, the banana looks like IM-. Therefore, you may see local unique identifiers for this resource that look like IM-19210-3 (instead of the canonical form 19210-3) and CURIEs for this resource that look like imex:IM-19210-3 (instead of the canonical form imex:19210-3). The Bioregistry will automatically strip off the banana when standardizing local unique identifiers and CURIEs.

A provider turns a local unique identifiers from a resource into a URI. Many providers are also resolvable as URLs (i.e., they can be used in a web browser).

The local unique identifier 19210-3 is used to demonstrate the providers available for International Molecular Exchange. A guide for curating additional providers can be found here.

Extra Providers

Additional providers curated in the Bioregistry are listed here. These are typically inherited from or Prefix Commons, and need extra curation.
