Home of the SWISS-PROT Annotated Protein Sequence Database. SWISS-PROT is a curated protein sequence database that strives to provide a high level of annotations (such as the description of the function of a protein, its domains structure, post-translational modifications, variants, etc), a minimal level of redundancy, and a high level of integration with other databases.
This database, developed by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), is a catalogue of human genes and genetic disorders authored and edited by Dr. Victor A. McKusick and his colleagues at Johns Hopkins and elsewhere. It contains textual information, pictures, and reference information as well as links to NCBI’s Entrez database of MEDLINE articles and sequence information.
