UniProt protein sequence databases: use and pitfalls
Lausanne, 1 April 2011
The goal of this one-day workshop is to give some basic theoretical and practical knowledge on protein sequence databases and, in particular, on the optimum use of the UniProt web site.
- Where do the protein sequences come from?
- What are the differences between UniProtKB/TrEMBL and UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot?
- What are the manual and automated annotation pipelines ?
- How can protein sequence accuracy and annotation quality be estimated?
- How can large dataset (i.e. complete proteome) for a particular organism be retrieved?
- How can biological knowledge from a Blast result be extracted?
- What are the differences between UniProt and the NCBI protein sequence databases?
- How can accession numbers, GIs or other record identifiers corresponding to the proteins of interest be retrieved?
