The Mammalian Phenotype Ontology (MP) classifies and organises phenotypic information related to the mouse and other mammalian species. This ontology has been applied to mouse phenotype descriptions in various databases allowing comparisons of data from diverse mammalian sources. It can facilitate in the identification of appropriate experimental disease models, and aid in the discovery of candidate disease genes and molecular signaling pathways.

Pattern for Local Unique Identifiers

Local identifiers in Mammalian Phenotype Ontology should match this regular expression:

Example Local Unique Identifier
0005452   Resolve
Pattern for CURIES

Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from Mammalian Phenotype Ontology 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 Mammalian Phenotype Ontology, the banana looks like MP:. Therefore, you may see local unique identifiers for this resource that look like MP:0005452 (instead of the canonical form 0005452) and CURIEs for this resource that look like MP:MP:0005452 (instead of the canonical form MP:0005452). The Bioregistry will automatically strip off the banana when standardizing local unique identifiers and CURIEs.
