Database Description

The UniProtKB Sequence/Annotation Version database (UniSave) is a comprehensive archive of UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot a nd UniProtKB/TrEMBL entry versions. All changed Swiss-Prot and TrEMBL entries are loaded into the UniSave as part of the public UniProtKB releases. Unlike the UniProtKB, which contains only the latest Swiss-Prot and TrEMBL entry versions, the UniSave provides access to previous versions of these entries.


UniProt is mainly supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant 1 U01 HG02712-01. Minor support for the EBI's involvement in UniProt comes from the two European Union contracts BioBabel (QLRT-2000-00981) and TEMBLOR (QLRI-2001-00015) and from the NIH grant 1R01HGO2273-01. Swiss-Prot activities at the SIB are supported by the Swiss Federal Government through the Federal Office of Education and Science. PIR activities are also supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF) grants DBI-0138188 and ITR-0205470.
