UniProtJAPI: a remote API for accessing UniProt data

Abstract

Programmatic access to the UniProt Knowledgebase (UniProtKB) is essential for many bioinformatics applications dealing with protein data. We have created a Java library named UniProtJAPI, which facilitates the integration of UniProt data into Java-based software applications. The library supports queries and similarity searches that return UniProtKB entries in the form of Java objects. These objects contain functional annotations or sequence information associated with a UniProt entry. Here, we briefly describe the UniProtJAPI and demonstrate its usage.
