About the team/job
The UniProt Knowledgebase acts as a central hub of biological and biomedical knowledge by providing a unified view of protein sequences linked to functional information. Reviewed records are expertly curated with information extracted from the literature and curator-evaluated sequence analysis. The Gene Ontology annotation database contains more structured data, describing the function of the protein in a way that increases computational accessibility.
The role consists of reading and evaluating experimental literature and transferring selected data to the appropriate entries in protein databases, primarily UniProt and Gene Ontology.
The curator will work on the UniProt and Gene Ontology project with colleagues in the UniProt and Gene Ontology consortia, other protein databases at the EMBL-EBI (e.g. InterPro, PDBe, IntAct), relevant model organism databases and the biocuration community
