Latest UniProtKB News
- Update of ECO mapping for evidences
In 2011, we have started to use the Evidence Codes Ontology (ECO) to describe the evidences for UniProtKB annotations. Since then, this ontology has been extended and the GO Consortium has published a mapping of their GO evidence codes to ECO. We have adapted our mapping to ECO accordingly to have equivalent evidence codes for UniProtKB and GO annotations.

- Cross-references to MaxQB
- Removal of the cross-references to ProtClustDB
Cross-references to ProtClustDB have been removed.

Latest UniParc News
- UniParc cross-references with multiple taxonomy identifiers
The UniParc XML format uses
dbReference elements to represent cross-references to external database records that contain the same sequence as the UniParc record. Additional information about an external database record is provided with different types of
property child elements, e.g. the species is represented with a
property of the type
"NCBI_taxonomy_id" that stores an NCBItaxonomy identifier in its
value attribute. In the past, all external database records described a single species.
