Chromosome Walking: A Novel Approach to Analyse Amino Acid Content of Human Proteins Ordered by Gene Position

Annamaria Vernone, Chiara Ricca, Gianpiero Pescarmona, Francesca Silvagno
2021 Applied Sciences  
Notwithstanding the huge amount of detailed information available in protein databases, it is not possible to automatically download a list of proteins ordered by the position of their codifying gene.  ...  In this study, we developed a new procedure that interrogates two human databases (genomic and protein) and produces a novel dataset of ordered proteins following the mapping of the corresponding genes  ...  The most used protein database, UniProt Knowledgebase (Uniprot), gives information on human proteins without ordering based on gene position.  ...
