The Universal Protein Resource (UniProt) is a freely available comprehensive resource for protein sequence and annotation data. UniProt is a collaboration between the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI), the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics (SIB), and the Protein Information Resource (PIR). Across the three institutes more than 100 people are involved through different tasks such as expert curation, software development, and support.This chapter introduces the functionality and data… 
Semantic Annotation Modelling for Protein Functions Prediction
TLDR
This study introduces a semantic model for representation of functional annotations based on a resource description framework standard (RDF) for de-novo sequenced genomes.
ProtMiscuity: a database of promiscuous proteins
TLDR
ProtMiscuity could assist in the study of the underlying mechanisms of promiscuous reactions by offering a collection of experimentally derived data, extensively linked with other databases providing biological, structural and functional information.
Computational identification of protein-protein interactions in model plant proteomes
TLDR
This is the first work where a PPI prediction method was developed for and applied on benchmark datasets of Arabidopsis, and showed a high prediction accuracy of over 90% and very high precision of close to 1.0.
Consensus coding sequence (CCDS) database: a standardized set of human and mouse protein-coding regions supported by expert curation
TLDR
The ongoing work, growth and stability of the CCDS dataset is outlined and expert curation scenarios, with specific examples highlighting the importance of an accurate reference genome assembly and the crucial role played by input from the research community are presented.
LitVar: a semantic search engine for linking genomic variant data in PubMed and PMC
TLDR
LitVar is developed for the search and retrieval of standardized variant information that uses advanced text mining techniques to compute and extract relationships between variants and other associated entities such as diseases and chemicals/drugs.
HuVarBase: A human variant database with comprehensive information at gene and protein levels
TLDR
The HuVarBase (HUmanVARiantdataBASE) assimilates publicly available human variant data at protein level and gene level into a comprehensive resource that improves the analyses of variants for disease prediction, prevention or treatment.
Sequence analysis Correcting mistakes in predicting distributions
TLDR
A simple, alternative approximation that uses performance estimates of methods to error-correct the predicted distributions of biological datasets, using the confusion matrix describing the performance of the prediction tool for correction.
Exploring general-purpose protein features for distinguishing enzymes and non-enzymes within the twilight zone
TLDR
The applicability of ProtDCal as a general-purpose-AF protein modelling method is illustrated through the discrimination between two comprehensive protein functional classes, and places the methodology on the top range of methods to model and predict protein function using alignment-free approaches.
A LOGICAL AND ONTOLOGICAL FRAMEWORK FOR KNOWLEDGE DISCOVERY ON GENE REGULATORY NETWORKS. CASE STUDY: BILE ACID AND XENOBIOTIC SYSTEM (BAXS)
This work aims to develop a novel computational framework for automatic or semi-automatic modeling of gene regulatory networks, in which possible connections between genetic structural knowledge and

TLDR
The UniProt Knowledgebase (UniProtKB) acts as a central hub of protein knowledge by providing a unified view of protein sequence and functional information, allowing users to trace the provenance of all data.
UniProt: A hub for protein information
TLDR
An annotation score for all entries in UniProt is introduced to represent the relative amount of knowledge known about each protein to help identify which proteins are the best characterized and most informative for comparative analysis.

TLDR
This work shows how to balance sensitivity with selectivity by selecting and demonstrating proper database, algorithm, and alignment display options of the user‐friendly Web sites of the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI).
A comprehensive protein-centric ID mapping service for molecular data integration
TLDR
This work has developed comprehensive protein-centric ID mapping services providing mappings for 90 IDs derived from databases on genes, proteins, pathways, diseases, structures, protein families, protein interaction, literature, ontologies, etc.
Fast, scalable generation of high-quality protein multiple sequence alignments using Clustal Omega
TLDR
A new program called Clustal Omega is described, which can align virtually any number of protein sequences quickly and that delivers accurate alignments, and which outperforms other packages in terms of execution time and quality.
