UniProt release 2014_02

UniProt 2014_02 is out. Get your 53,249,714 protein records today! Read headline article 'Epigenetics in the spotlight' and the latest UniProtKB news at http://www.uniprot.org/news/2014/02/19/release.

The format of the cross-references to the PROSITE and HAMAP databases has been simplified in order to align it with the format of other InterPro member databases. Cross-references have been added to TreeFam (http://www.treefam.org/) and also to BioGrid (http://thebiogrid.org/).

There have been various changes to the controlled vocabulary of human diseases and also to the controlled vocabulary of PTMs.

We have also stopped importing UniParc records that correspond to Ensembl proteomes sequences in the UniRef databases, as the relevant sequences are now part of UniProtKB.
