The miRBase Sequence Database is a searchable database of published miRNA sequences and annotation. The data were previously provided by the miRNA Registry. Each entry in the miRBase Sequence database represents a predicted hairpin portion of a miRNA transcript (termed mir in the database), with information on the location and sequence of the mature miRNA sequence (termed miR).

Pattern for Local Unique Identifiers

Local identifiers in miRBase pre-miRNA ID should match this regular expression:
^MI\d{7}$

Example Local Unique Identifier
MI0026471   Resolve
Pattern for CURIES

Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from miRBase pre-miRNA ID should match this regular expression:
^mirbase:MI\d{7}$

Example CURIE
mirbase:MI0026471
Metaregistry

The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are 6 mappings to external registries for mirbase.
