     139The NCBI don't (yet) provide their data in RDF format, but they do provide a lot of different URLs for their resources (in various formats), some of which follow the pattern above: 
     140 
     141http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/taxonomy/9606 
     142http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/gene/15275 
     143http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18472304 
     144http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/2755819 (this redirects) 
     145 
     146However, it is unclear if this pattern covers all their databases or if they regard these as URLs they intend to support long term. Moreover, these URLs currently give HTML (although in the long term the NCBI could return RDF by content negotiation?). Could we or ''should'' we use these NCBI URLs as URIs right now? 
     147 
     148For publications with a DOI, do these URLs also make good URIs? The all redirect to the journal websites which tend to give you an HTML page: 
     149 
     150http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.jbi.2008.03.004 
     151http://dx.doi.org/10.1186/1471-2105-10-S10-S11
