Pattern for Local Unique Identifiers

Local identifiers in Ontology for Parasite LifeCycle should match this regular expression:

Example Local Unique Identifier
0000319   Resolve
Pattern for CURIES

Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from Ontology for Parasite LifeCycle 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 Ontology for Parasite LifeCycle, the banana looks like OPL:. Therefore, you may see local unique identifiers for this resource that look like OPL:0000319 (instead of the canonical form 0000319) and CURIEs for this resource that look like OPL:OPL:0000319 (instead of the canonical form OPL:0000319). The Bioregistry will automatically strip off the banana when standardizing local unique identifiers and CURIEs.
