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 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 Uber Anatomy Ontology, the banana looks like UBERON:. Therefore, you may see local unique identifiers for this resource that look like UBERON:2005080 (instead of the canonical form 2005080) and CURIEs for this resource that look like UBERON:UBERON:2005080 (instead of the canonical form UBERON:2005080). The Bioregistry will automatically strip off the banana when standardizing local unique identifiers and CURIEs.
