Online training for UniProt

Would you like to learn more about using UniProt but aren't able to access any training courses locally? Perhaps you would like a course that you can read and watch in your own time? Or even something to share with your students to introduce them to UniProt? We  provide several online learning resources that can help! Here's a summary of everything you need to know to get started with using the UniProt website.

For an introduction to using pages on the UniProt website, there is a series of short videos that demonstrate how to use UniProt pages in one-two minutes on the UniProt YouTube Channel. Videos available so far:

If you are looking for a basic overview with further links to detailed help pages, the EBI Train Online portal provides a quick tour of UniProt.

We also provide a full length course through the EBI training portal titled 'UniProt: Exploring protein sequence and functional information'. This interactive and in-depth course that covers many areas including:
  • An introduction to what UniProt is and when to use it
  • Where the data and annotation comes from
  • How to track provenance of information
  • How to use UniProt datasets and tools
  • How to download data and submit your own data
  • Guided examples
  • Exercises
  • A quiz to check your learning

We are planning to launch a series of webinars in 2015 to provide more interactive online training. Are there any topics you would like us to cover in particular? Write in and let us know!
