The UniProt Consortium

MMDS uses the UniProt databases of protein sequences Swiss-Prot and TrEMBL for identifying protein targets and determining alternate targets based on sequence similarity. These databases can also sub-set protein sequences into protein features. When applicable, these features are used to define a protein target in more detail.
