Contributing to the UniProt Knowledgebase: how you can help
The webinar will present how the research community can contribute both literature references and annotation to the UniProt database of protein sequence and function.
We will provide an overview on UniProt and will focus on describing a new functionality which allows users to add publications and knowledge to protein entries. We will give a demo on how to link a publication to a UniProt entry, fill in the submission form and include functional annotation. UniProt uses ORCID, a unique identifier for each researcher, as a mechanism for user validation and credit for these contributions. In this webinar you will also learn how your domain knowledge contribution improves the resource for the general community, and how it can be used as an alternative metric of your research output.
This webinar will be presented by Cecilia Arighi from the Center of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology, University of Delaware.
