==== Persistent unique identifier
Any persistent, unique identifier assigned to the accession so it can be unambiguously
referenced at the global level and the information associated with it harvested through
automated means. Report one PUID for each accession.
There are various "types" of PUIDs: DOI, UUID, LSID, etc.
The Secretariat of the ITPGRFA is facilitating the assignment of
DOI to PGRFA at the accession level (http://www.planttreaty.org/doi).
UUID (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universally_unique_identifier[Universally unique identifier])
is an identifier standard used in software. A UUID is simply a 128-bit value (16 bytes).
For human-readable display, many systems use a canonical format using hexadecimal text with
inserted hyphen characters. For example:
de305d54-75b4-431b-adb2-eb6b9e546014
The intent of UUIDs is to enable distributed systems to uniquely identify information *without significant central coordination*.
In this context the word unique should be taken to mean "practically unique" rather than "guaranteed unique".
Different https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universally_unique_identifier#Variants_and_Versions[variants and versions of UUID] exist.
Version 4 (Random UUID) is most commonly used in software.
Genebanks not applying a true PUID to their accessions should use, and request recipients to
use, the concatenation of INSTCODE, ACCENUMB, and GENUS as a globally unique identifier
similar in most respects to the PUID whenever they exchange information on accessions with
third parties (e.g. `NOR017:NGB17773:ALLIUM`).
