UniProt manual annotation
Manual annotation consists of a critical review of experimental and predicted data for each protein as well as manual verification of each protein sequence .
Annotation methods applied to UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot include manual extraction and structuring of information from the literature, manual verification of results from computational analyses, mining and integration of large-scale data sets, and continuous updating as new information becomes available.
UniProt concentrates its manual annotation effort on entries from model organisms. We aim to provide high quality annotation for representative members of all protein families across diverse taxonomic groups.
UniProt manual annotation programs
The Viral protein annotation program focuses on the manual annotation of viral proteins, viral taxonomy and host interaction specificities.
