Search for Sequences in UniProt (Swiss-Prot/TrEMBL)

Search for Sequences in UniProt searches the UniProt Knowledgebase (UniProtKB). UniProtKB contains UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot entries, which are manually curated, and UniProtKB/TrEMBL entries, which are annotated by automated systems.

To open the tool, go to:

        Download | Search for Sequences in UniProt (Image search_uniprot_sequence_16_n_p)

One or more search terms can be entered, and a table of entries matching the search terms is returned. Rows in that table can be selected and the corresponding UniProtKB entries downloaded and opened, or downloaded and saved (figure 10.4).
