SwissLipids is a curated resource that provides information about known lipids, including lipid structure, metabolism, interactions, and subcellular and tissue localization. Information is curated from peer-reviewed literature and referenced using established ontologies, and provided with full provenance and evidence codes for curated assertions.

Pattern for Local Unique Identifiers

Local identifiers in SwissLipid should match this regular expression:

Example Local Unique Identifier
000000341   Resolve
Pattern for CURIES

Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from SwissLipid 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 SwissLipid, the banana looks like SLM:. Therefore, you may see local unique identifiers for this resource that look like SLM:000000341 (instead of the canonical form 000000341) and CURIEs for this resource that look like SLM:SLM:000000341 (instead of the canonical form SLM:000000341). The Bioregistry will automatically strip off the banana when standardizing local unique identifiers and CURIEs.
