Pattern for Local Unique Identifiers

Local identifiers in Phenotype And Trait Ontology should match this regular expression:

Example Local Unique Identifier
0001998   Resolve
Pattern for CURIES

Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from Phenotype And Trait 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 Phenotype And Trait Ontology, the banana looks like PATO:. Therefore, you may see local unique identifiers for this resource that look like PATO:0001998 (instead of the canonical form 0001998) and CURIEs for this resource that look like PATO:PATO:0001998 (instead of the canonical form PATO:0001998). The Bioregistry will automatically strip off the banana when standardizing local unique identifiers and CURIEs.
