Registry Molecular Interactions Controlled Vocabulary

The Molecular Interactions (MI) ontology forms a structured controlled vocabulary for the annotation of experiments concerned with protein-protein interactions. MI is developed by the HUPO Proteomics Standards Initiative.

Pattern for Local Unique Identifiers

Local identifiers in Molecular Interactions Controlled Vocabulary should match this regular expression:

Example Local Unique Identifier
0058   Resolve
Pattern for CURIES

Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from Molecular Interactions Controlled Vocabulary should match this regular expression:

Example CURIE
MIRIAM Namespace Embedded in LUI
The legacy MIRIAM standard for generating CURIEs with this resource annotates the namespaceEmbeddedInLUI as true. 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 Molecular Interactions Controlled Vocabulary, the banana looks like MI:. Therefore, you may see local unique identifiers for this resource that look like MI:0058 (instead of the canonical form 0058) and CURIEs for this resource that look like MI:MI:0058 (instead of the canonical form MI:0058). The Bioregistry will automatically strip off the banana when standardizing local unique identifiers and CURIEs.
