Updated entries, 8781. Unchanged entries, 47407. Entries with updated sequences, 38. With a fragmented AA sequence, 129. Protein Existence (PE), Number of entries.

Evidence at protein level, 9757. UniProt is a freely accessible database of protein sequence and functional information, many entries being derived from genome sequencing projects. It contains a large amount of information about the biological function of proteins derived from the research literature.

With the emergence of microcomputers and the constant increase in protein dataflow, Swiss-Prot needed specialized annotators, also called biocurators. About of the protein sequences in UniProtKB are derived from the translation of coding sequences ( CDS) . Each entry corresponds to a single contiguous sequence as contributed to the bank or reported in the literature. In some cases, entries have been assembled from several papers that report overlapping sequence regions. Data name, BlastX Result : Swiss-Prot.

The alignment information of each blast-hit is . The current situation of a research scientist has been described quite accurately by a quote from John Naisbitt, saying that “We are drowning in information, but starving. SWISS-PROT protein sequence database. Over a decade ago, Apweiler et al. Swiss-Prot , updated monthly , provides a high level of manually curated information (i.e., sequence, mutations, function, ontology) about the proteome, as deduced from the . Code to work with the sprotXX. Tested with: Release 56.

Classes: – Record Holds SwissProt data. Functions: – read Read one SwissProt. Reference Holds reference data from a SwissProt record.
