EMBL-EBI: Exploring Protein Sequence and Functional Information with UniProt

Wed 28 Oct 2015


This workshop will give an introduction to the resources provided by UniProt. Participants will be shown, and given hands-on experience in, how to navigate the website, search for data and run analysis tools. The session also covers what the sources of our data are and how they are curated. A basic introduction into accessing UniProt Knowledgebase programmatically will be given as well.

The timetable for this event can be found here.

Also note: This event is part of a series of short introductions focusing on EMBL-EBI resources. If you want to learn more about these separate training events, see the Related Courses section below.

After this course you should be able to:

  • Evaluate the differences between the different resources provided by UniProt
  • Browse the UniProt database in detail, learning about its structure and the type of data it contains
  • Select the most appropriate way to access sequence data for a specific purpose (sequence search, text search...)
  • Inter-convert database identifiers to and from UniProt identifiers

During this course you will learn about:

  • All the UniProt resources, in particular UniProt Knowledgebase (UniProtKB)
  • How to search UniProtKB
  • How to use the analysis tools available in UniProtKB
  • Ways of programmatic access to UniProtKB
