Registry Minimal Information about any Sequence

The GSC family of minimum information standards (checklists) – Minimum Information about any (x) Sequence (MIxS). MIxS identifiers are for terms describing an aspect of an environmental sample.


Some things to be decided before granting - [ ] should the prefix be mixs, gsc.mixs, MIxS, MIXS, ...? - [ ] MIxS terms are most commonly identified by a short computable stable label, e.g ph_regm. The GSC CIG team are creating numeric identifiers, e.g. MIXS:0001056 - Should we support both schemes? - If we do, should these be different prefixes? I would strongly recommend this. E.g. mixs.term:ph_regm, mixs:0001056. We can then have different regex patterns for both Additional notes: - The will likely changes to a URI that will also serve as a semweb identifier - It currently redirects to the tdwg wiki but this is I assume temporary

Pattern for Local Unique Identifiers

Local identifiers in Minimal Information about any Sequence should match this regular expression:

Example Local Unique Identifier
0001056   Resolve
Pattern for CURIES

Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from Minimal Information about any Sequence should match this regular expression:

Example CURIE
2011 Minimum information about a marker gene sequence (MIMARKS) and minimum information about any (x) sequence (MIxS) specifications.

Metaregistry Minimal Information about any Sequence

The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are 3 mappings to external registries for mixs with 2 unique external prefixes.

Registry Name Registry Metaprefix External Prefix Curate
AberOWL AberOWL logo aberowl MIXS
BioPortal BioPortal Prefixes logo bioportal MIXS
FAIRSharing FAIRSharing logo fairsharing FAIRsharing.9aa0zp

Providers are various services that resolve CURIEs to URLs. The example CURIE mixs:0001056 is used to demonstrate the provides available for mixs. Generation of OLS and BioPortal URLs requires additional programmatic logic beyond string formatting.
