Gene counti <p>This is the total number of unique genes found in the proteome set, algorithmically computed. For each gene, a single representative protein sequence is chosen from the proteome. Where possible, reviewed (Swiss-Prot) protein sequences are chosen as the representatives.</p> - Download one protein sequence per gene (FASTA)
Proteome IDi <p>The proteome identifier (UPID) is the unique identifier assigned to the set of proteins that constitute the <a href="">proteome</a>. It consists of the characters ‘UP’ followed by 9 digits, is stable across releases and can therefore be used to cite a UniProt proteome.<p><a href='/help/proteome_id' target='_top'>More...</a></p>UP000009045

Pan proteomei <p>A pan proteome is the full set of proteins thought to be expressed by a group of highly related organisms (e.g. multiple strains of the same bacterial species).<p><a href='/help/pan_proteomes' target='_top'>More...</a></p> This proteome is part of the Rhizobium meliloti (strain 1021) (Ensifer meliloti) pan proteome (fasta)

Gram-negative nitrogen-fixing bacteria living in soil and able to establish a symbiosis with host plants from the genera Medicago, Melilotus and Trigonella leading to the formation of nodules on roots. S. meliloti strain SM11 was isolated from a root nodule of an alfalfa plant, grown in a field plot in Bavaria, Germany. In the experiment genetically modified S.meliloti was released in the field; strain SM11 belonged to a dominant group of autochthonous strains which finally outcompeted the released strains for host plant nodulation and saprophytic growth. One chromosome and 2 megaplasmids were sequenced; 2 other smaller plasmids were sequenced earlier. Sequencing shows new genes on the plasmids, suggesting the pan-genome has not yet been fully explored (adapted from PMID 21396969).
