This Implementation Study has established Identifiers.org as a stable ELIXIR system for uniform identifier resolution to major bioinformatics resources (with a focus on ELIXIR reference resources). The upgraded Identifiers.org API supports interoperability and identifier resolution for ELIXIR services, national programmes and external users.
This approach will ensure that all stored reference links will always point to the right data source. It helps developers of bioinformatics tools and database providers using interconnected networks of cross-referenced systems, and avoids broken links or 'dead ends' that can compromise the whole network.
