The Plant Ontology is a structured vocabulary and database resource that links plant anatomy, morphology and growth and development to plant genomics data.

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 includes the namespaceEmbeddedInLUI as true. The actual part that gets prefixed before the local unique identifier regex, otherwise known as the banana, is PO:. Therefore, you might see local unique identifiers written out as CURIEs.

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

Registry Name Metaprefix External Prefix
BioPortal Prefixes bioportal PO
Gene Ontology Registry go PO miriam po
Name-to-Thing n2t po
OBO Foundry obofoundry PO
Ontology Lookup Service ols po
OntoBee ontobee PO
Prefix Commons prefixcommons PO

Providers are various services that resolve CURIEs to URLs. The example CURIE po:0009089 is used to demonstrate the provides available for po. Generation of OLS and BioPortal URLs requires additional programmatic logic beyond string formatting.
