OrthoDB presents a catalog of eukaryotic orthologous protein-coding genes across vertebrates, arthropods, and fungi. Orthology refers to the last common ancestor of the species under consideration, and thus OrthoDB explicitly delineates orthologs at each radiation along the species phylogeny. The database of orthologs presents available protein descriptors, together with Gene Ontology and InterPro attributes, which serve to provide general descriptive annotations of the orthologous groups

This resource is a provider. This means that while it may have its own prefix, it actually reuses the identifiers provided by the uniprot prefix. For all use cases, you should use uniprot instead of orthodb.

Pattern for Local Unique Identifiers

Local identifiers in OrthoDB should match this regular expression:
^\w+$

Example Local Unique Identifier

Pattern for CURIES

Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from OrthoDB should match this regular expression:
^orthodb:\w+$

Example CURIE
orthodb:Q9P0K8

Metaregistry OrthoDB

The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are 5 mappings to external registries for orthodb.

Providers

Providers are various services that resolve CURIEs to URLs. The example CURIE orthodb:Q9P0K8 is used to demonstrate the provides available for orthodb. Generation of OLS and BioPortal URLs requires additional programmatic logic beyond string formatting.
