UniProt, Universal Protein Resource
Tutorial and training materials by OpenHelix
|Learn to use the UniProt Knowledgebase, which has detailed curated information about known proteins, with predictions and computational assignments for both characterized and uncharacterized proteins. The UniRef layer provides clustered handy links to related proteins. UniParc archive records collect non-redundant but complete collections of protein sequence data. This tutorial will explore each type of record--UniProt, UniRef, and UniParc, and examine available search strategies. This resource is a foundational tool for proteomics research.|
- to perform text searches for relevant protein information
- to search with sequences as a starting point
- to understand the different types of UniProt records
- to create multi-sequence alignments from protein records using Clustal

More about the resource:
The UniProt Resource which is a centralized database for protein sequences and data, comes from the UniProt Consortium, a team consisting of members of the Swiss Bioinformatics Institute (SIB), the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI), and the Protein Information Resource (PIR). These groups have come together to create a comprehensive and authoritative protein data resource for researchers.
