Sea lice (Lepeophtheirus salmonis and Caligus species) are the major pathogens of salmon, significantly impacting upon the global salmon farming industry. Lice control is primarily accomplished through chemotherapeutants, though emerging resistance necessitates the development of new treatment methods (biological agents, prophylactics and new drugs). LiceBase is a database for sea lice genomics, providing genome annotation of the Atlantic salmon louse Lepeophtheirus salmonis, a genome browser, and access to related high-thoughput genomics data. LiceBase also mines and stores data from related genome sequencing and functional genomics projects.

Pattern for Local Unique Identifiers

Local identifiers in LiceBase should match this regular expression:

Example Local Unique Identifier
EMLSAT00000003403   Resolve
Pattern for CURIES

Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from LiceBase should match this regular expression:

Example CURIE
Metaregistry LiceBase

The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are 6 mappings to external registries for this resource with 4 unique external prefixes.

Registry Name Registry Metaprefix External Prefix Curate
BioContext biocontext LICEBASE
FAIRSharing FAIRSharing logo fairsharing FAIRsharing.c7w81a

re3data Registry of Research Data Repositories logo re3data r3d100013547

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 EMLSAT00000003403 is used to demonstrate the providers available for LiceBase. A guide for curating additional providers can be found here.
