UniProtKB advanced search options

The table below lists the different options available in the “Advanced search” menu for the UniProt Knowledgebase. Columns 2 to 4 correspond to the submenu levels that are provided for some sections, after clicking on the (sub-)section name in the advanced search interface.

The 2-letter codes in square brackets (e.g. “[DE]”, “[CC]”) correspond to the line codes used in the flat text files.
