Overview

neXtProt is a platform developed at SIB that helps researchers answer questions relevant to human proteins. It provides a comprehensive set of high quality, fully traceable and standardized annotations on human proteins at the genomic, transcriptomic and proteomic levels and the tools to explore these, manually or programmatically. The neXtProt search functionalities are based on SPARQL, a semantic query language for databases that is recognized as one of the key technologies of the semantic web and facilitates interoperability with other resources. Acting as the reference database for the HUPO Human Protein Project since 2013, neXtProt has a strong focus on mass spectrometry data and developed specific companion tools for the proteomics community.
