Pattern for Local Unique Identifiers

Local identifiers in Plant Ontology should match this regular expression:

Example Local Unique Identifier
0009089   Resolve
Pattern for CURIES

Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from Plant 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 Plant Ontology, the banana looks like PO:. Therefore, you may see local unique identifiers for this resource that look like PO:0009089 (instead of the canonical form 0009089) and CURIEs for this resource that look like PO:PO:0009089 (instead of the canonical form PO:0009089). The Bioregistry will automatically strip off the banana when standardizing local unique identifiers and CURIEs.

A summary of the relations in the Bioregistry schema can be found here.
