Uberon is an integrated cross-species anatomy ontology representing a variety of entities classified according to traditional anatomical criteria such as structure, function and developmental lineage. The ontology includes comprehensive relationships to taxon-specific anatomical ontologies, allowing integration of functional, phenotype and expression data.

Pattern for Local Unique Identifiers

Local identifiers in Uber Anatomy Ontology should match this regular expression:

Example Local Unique Identifier
2005080   Resolve
Pattern for CURIES

Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from Uber Anatomy 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 UBERON:. Therefore, you might see local unique identifiers written out as CURIEs.
