Hi. I have a long list of GI which I want to retrieve their GO annotations. I read that one way to do it is by converting the GI identifier into UniPortKB identifier and from there to retrieve the GO annotations. I tried to do so by using the uniprot_tools 0.4.1 where I mapped the GI into UniProtKB and then retrieved the UniProt object.
For some of the GI's it worked but for some get the following message : Sorry, no results were found. You mapped from GI number to UniProtKB. However, 1 was successfully mapped to the UniParc sequence archive. View UniParc results (1)
When I looked on the UniParc result I get the following table: http://www.uniprot.org/uniparc/?query=yourlist:M20161020F725F458AC8690F874DD868E4ED79B8896594EO&sort=yourlist:M20161020F725F458AC8690F874DD868E4ED79B8896594EO&columns=yourlist(M20161020F725F458AC8690F874DD868E4ED79B8896594EO),id,organisms,kb,first-seen,last-seen,length
First, anybody can explain me what exactly is the different between UniPARC and UniPortKB. Second, what am I suppose to do with the table and how can I get the GO annotations?
