Resource for protein sequence and functional information that welcomes updates, corrections, and the submission of new protein sequence data. It is comprised of four components, each optimized for different uses. UniProt Knowledgebase (UniProtKB) is the central access point for curated protein information, including function, classification, and cross-reference, and contains two sections: UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot, which is manually annotated and reviewed; and UniProtKB/TrEMBL, which is automatically annotated and not reviewed. UniProt Reference Clusters (UniRef) are databases providing clustered sets of sequences from the UniProtKB and selected UniProt Archive records to obtain complete coverage of sequence space at several resolutions while hiding redundant sequences. UniProt Archive (UniParc) is a comprehensive repository used to keep track of sequences and their identifiers. UniProt Metagenomic and Environmental Sequences (UniMES) database is a repository specifically developed for metagenomic and environmental data.
