UniProt collects and annotates proteomes(Protein sets expressed in an organism). Using this function you can search UniProt for available proteomes. see What are proteomes? for more information.

rba_uniprot_proteomes(upid, get_proteins = FALSE, reviewed = NULL, ...)



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


logical: set FALSE (default) to only return information of the proteome with supplied UPID, set TRUE to also return the proteins of the supplied proteome UPID.


Logical: Only considered when get_proteins is TRUE. If TRUE, only return "UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot" (reviewed) proteins; If FALSE, only return TrEMBL (un-reviewed) entries. leave it as NULL if you do not want to filter proteins based on their review status.


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


a list containing information of the proteome with your supplied UPID that can contain the proteomes protein entries based on the value of get_proteins argument.
