Registry Research Resource Identification

The Research Resource Identification Initiative provides RRIDs to 4 main classes of resources: Antibodies, Cell Lines, Model Organisms, and Databases / Software tools.: Antibodies, Model Organisms, and Databases / Software tools. The initiative works with participating journals to intercept manuscripts in the publication process that use these resources, and allows publication authors to incorporate RRIDs within the methods sections. It also provides resolver services that access curated data from 10 data sources: the antibody registry (a curated catalog of antibodies), the SciCrunch registry (a curated catalog of software tools and databases), and model organism nomenclature authority databases (MGI, FlyBase, WormBase, RGD), as well as various stock centers. These RRIDs are aggregated and can be searched through SciCrunch.

Pattern for Local Unique Identifiers

Local identifiers in Research Resource Identification should match this regular expression:
^[a-zA-Z]+.+$

Example Local Unique Identifier
AB_262044   Resolve
Pattern for CURIES

Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from Research Resource Identification should match this regular expression:
^rrid:[a-zA-Z]+.+$

Example CURIE
rrid:AB_262044
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 RRID:. Therefore, you might see local unique identifiers written out as CURIEs.
Metaregistry Research Resource Identification

The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are 4 mappings to external registries for rrid.

Registry Name Metaprefix External Prefix
BioContext biocontext RRID
FAIRSharing FAIRSharing logo fairsharing FAIRsharing.ATwSZG
Identifiers.org Identifiers.org logo miriam rrid
Name-to-Thing Name-to-Thing logo n2t rrid
Providers

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