Using this function you can search UniProt for available gene-centrics from proteomes. For more information, see What are proteomes? and Automatic gene-centric isoform mapping for eukaryotic reference proteome entries. You may also refine your search with modifiers upid, accession and gene. See "Arguments section" for more information.


rba_uniprot_genecentric_search(upid = NULL, accession = NULL, gene = NULL, ...)



UniProt Proteome identifier (UPID). You can supply up to 100 UPIDs.


UniProtKB primary or secondary accession(s). You can supply up to 100 accession numbers.


unique gene identifier(s) found in MOD, Ensembl, Ensembl Genomes, OLN, ORF or UniProt Gene Name.


rbioapi option(s). See rba_options's arguments manual for more information on available options.


a list containing gene-centric proteins search hits.


Note that this is a search function. Thus, you are not required to fill every argument; You may use whatever combinations of arguments you see fit for your query.
