Description

This track shows protein sequence annotations from the UniProt/SwissProt database, mapped to genomic coordinates. It shows how the protein sequences in this database map to the genome. The data has been curated from scientific publications by the UniProt/SwissProt staff.

Note that the data is not online at UniProt itself yet, so the Genome Browser is the only place where you can see it, at the time of release of this Genome Browser. It will be released on April 22nd.

Display Conventions and Configuration

Genomic locations of UniProt/SwissProt annotations are labeled with a short name for the type of annotation (e.g. "glyco", "disulf bond", "Signal peptide" etc.). A click on them shows the full annotation and provides a link to the UniProt/SwissProt record for more details.

Mouse-over a feature to see the full UniProt annotation comment. For variants, the mouse-over will show the full name of the UniProt disease acronym.

Methods

UniProt sequences were aligned to UCSC/Gencode transcript sequences first with BLAT, filtered with pslReps (93% query coverage, within top 1% score), lifted to genome positions with pslMap and filtered again. UniProt annotations were obtained from the UniProt XML file. The annotations were then mapped to the genome through the alignment using the pslMap program. This mapping approach draws heavily on the LS-SNP pipeline by Mark Diekhans. For human and mouse, the alignments were filtered by retaining only proteins annotated with a given transcript in the Genome Browser table kgXref. Like all Genome Browser source code, the main script used to build this track can be found on GitHub.

Data Access

The raw data can be explored interactively with the Table Browser or the Data Integrator. For automated analysis, the genome annotation is stored in a bigBed file that can be downloaded from the download server. The exact filenames can be found in the track configuration file. Annotations can be converted to ASCII text by our tool bigBedToBed which can be compiled from the source code or downloaded as a precompiled binary for your system. Instructions for downloading source code and binaries can be found here. The tool can also be used to obtain only features within a given range, for example:

bigBedToBed http://hgdownload.soe.ucsc.edu/gbdb/wuhCor1/uniprot/unipAliSwissprotCov2.bb -chrom=NC_045512v2 -start=0 -end=29903 stdout
