To make AgroLD Linked Data compliant, de-referenceable stable URIs provided by (, Ontobee ( and canonical stable URIs provided UniprotKB are used.

Datasets that are not included in these registries, new URIs were minted the identifiers for these datasets take the form:[resource_namespace]/[identifier]

Similarly, properties, would be of the form:[vocabulary]/[property]
