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 CURIES

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

Example CURIE

The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are 3 mappings to external registries for licebase.

Registry Name Metaprefix External Prefix miriam licebase
Name-to-Thing n2t licebase
Prefix Commons prefixcommons LICEBASE

Providers are various services that resolve CURIEs to URLs. The example CURIE licebase:EMLSAT00000003403 is used to demonstrate the provides available for licebase. Generation of OLS and BioPortal URLs requires additional programmatic logic beyond string formatting.
