The PSI-Mass Spectrometry (MS) CV contains all the terms used in the PSI MS-related data standards. The CV contains a logical hierarchical structure to ensure ease of maintenance and the development of software that makes use of complex semantics. The CV contains terms required for a complete description of an MS analysis pipeline used in proteomics, including sample labeling, digestion enzymes, instrumentation parts and parameters, software used for identification and quantification of peptides/proteins and the parameters and scores used to determine their significance.

Pattern for Local Unique Identifiers

Local identifiers in Mass spectrometry ontology should match this regular expression:

Example Local Unique Identifier
1000560   Resolve
Pattern for CURIES

Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from Mass spectrometry 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 Mass spectrometry ontology, the banana looks like MS:. Therefore, you may see local unique identifiers for this resource that look like MS:1000560 (instead of the canonical form 1000560) and CURIEs for this resource that look like MS:MS:1000560 (instead of the canonical form MS:1000560). The Bioregistry will automatically strip off the banana when standardizing local unique identifiers and CURIEs.

RDF Information

When using this resource in RDF, the following URI format should be used:$1


A provider turns a local unique identifiers from a resource into a URI. Many providers are also resolvable as URLs (i.e., they can be used in a web browser).

The local unique identifier 1000560 is used to demonstrate the providers available for Mass spectrometry ontology. A guide for curating additional providers can be found here.
