Example CURIE

The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are 4 mappings to external registries for metacyc.reaction.

Registry Name Metaprefix External Prefix
Biolink Model Registry biolink metacyc.reaction miriam metacyc.reaction
Name-to-Thing n2t metacyc.reaction
Prefix Commons prefixcommons METACYC.REACTION

Providers are various services that resolve CURIEs to URLs. The example CURIE metacyc.reaction:RXN-14904 is used to demonstrate the provides available for metacyc.reaction. Generation of OLS and BioPortal URLs requires additional programmatic logic beyond string formatting.
