The Library of Network-Based Cellular Signatures (LINCS) Program aims to create a network-based understanding of biology by cataloging changes in gene expression and other cellular processes that occur when cells are exposed to a variety of perturbing agents. The LINCS cell model system can have the following cell categories: cell lines, primary cells, induced pluripotent stem cells, differentiated cells, and embryonic stem cells. The metadata contains information provided by each LINCS Data and Signature Generation Center (DSGC) and the association with a tissue or organ from which the cells were derived, in many cases are also associated to a disease.

Pattern for Local Unique Identifiers

Local identifiers in LINCS Cell should match this regular expression:

Example Local Unique Identifier
LCL-2085   Resolve
Pattern for CURIES

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

Example CURIE
Metaregistry LINCS Cell

The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are 4 mappings to external registries for this resource with 2 unique external prefixes.

Registry Name Registry Metaprefix External Prefix Curate
BioContext biocontext LINCS.CELL
Cellosaurus Cellosaurus Registry logo cellosaurus LINCS_LDP logo miriam lincs.cell
N2T Name-to-Thing logo n2t lincs.cell

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 LCL-2085 is used to demonstrate the providers available for LINCS Cell. A guide for curating additional providers can be found here.
