Pattern for Local Unique Identifiers

Local identifiers in PDB Structure should match this regular expression:
^[0-9][A-Za-z0-9]{3}$

Example Local Unique Identifier
2gc4   Resolve
Pattern for CURIES

Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from PDB Structure should match this regular expression:
^pdb:[0-9][A-Za-z0-9]{3}$

Example CURIE
pdb:2gc4
Ontology

Metaregistry

The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are 8 mappings to external registries for pdb.

Providers

Providers are various services that resolve CURIEs to URLs. The example CURIE pdb:2gc4 is used to demonstrate the provides available for pdb. Generation of OLS and BioPortal URLs requires additional programmatic logic beyond string formatting.
