What is the difference between dealing with nucleotide DBs and protein DBs?
Name & description
Gene encoded from
Function (only one?)
Swiss-Prot: created in July 1986; since 1987, a collaboration of the SIB and the EMBL/EBI;
TrEMBL: created at the EBI in 1996 as a computer-annotated protein sequence database supplementing Swiss-Prot.
It was introduced to deal with the increased data flow from genome projects
2005- ~100,000 2009 - ~400,000
Different DBs – different accessions
What’s in UniProt?
