Lecture 2.21 Retrieving Information: Using Entrez
Lecture 2.22 Retrieving information: how it works: Servers have the records you want You need to understand the data they have, and how it is organized There are often many ways to get to an answer. Route to get there is not always obvious, but you need to think of alternatives and traps. Use some query language – each system has its own. Retrieve data in a specified format. Save it in a way that will be useful to you.
Lecture 2.23 What you may be looking for: Did a BLAST search – and you need more info about some of the proteins they found similarities to. Heard on about a disease gene that was recently discovered, and you want to know more about it. Want to build a dataset for local blast searches. A colleague wants you to do an alignment of all sequences from a given protein family.
Lecture 2.24 What you are looking for: PubMed paper from author X Sequence from gene X in organism Y All information about organelle W in model organism Y All information about disease X in human Orthologs of that disease genes in other model organisms
Lecture 2.25 Central Dogma: NCBI version RNA protein DNA Write a paper about it
Lecture 2.26 Entrez: Pathway to Discovery Amino acid sequence similarity Coding region features Nucleotide sequence similarity Term frequency statistics Literature citations in sequence databases MEDLINE abstracts Nucleotide sequences Protein sequences 1993

Lecture 2.249 RefSeq RefSeq represents the NCBI curated “reference sequences” for all ‘worked’ genome. Historically, these used to be referred to as “GenBank-Gold”. RefSeq are either genomic, mRNA or protein sequences. Not all sequences are in RefSeq All RefSeq sequences are assembled/taken from things in GenBank.
Lecture 2.250 Some of the features of the RefSeq: non-redundancy explicitly linked nucleotide and protein sequences updates to reflect current knowledge of sequence data and biology data validation and format consistency distinct accession series ongoing curation by NCBI staff and collaborators, with review status indicated on each record
Lecture 2.251 Accession number space GenBank: –1+5 (L12345, U00001) –2+6 (AF000001, AC000003) –4+2+6 (WGS) All have accession.version Protein: –1+5 (SwissProt/UniProt) –3+5 (GenPept) All have accession.version RefSeq: –N*_12345
Lecture 2.252 RefSeq Accession Number Space NC_123456GenomicComplete genomic molecules including genomes, chromosomes, organelles, plasmids. NG_123456GenomicIncomplete genomic region; supplied to support the NCBI Genome Annotation pipeline. NM_123456mRNA NR_123456RNANon-coding transcripts including structural RNAs, transcribed pseudogenes, and others NP_123456Protein NP_12345678ProteinPlanned expansion of accession series
Lecture 2.253 Automated Assemblies NT_123456GenomicIntermediate genomic assemblies of BAC sequence data NW_123456GenomicIntermediate genomic assemblies of Whole Genome Shotgun sequence data
Lecture 2.254 Model RefSeq records XM_123456mRNAmodel mRNA provided by the Genome Annotation process; sequence corresponds to the genomic contig. XR_123456RNAmodel non-coding transcripts provided by the Genome Annotation process; sequence corresponds to the genomic contig. XP_123456Proteinmodel proteins provided by the Genome Annotation process; sequence corresponds to the genomic contig.
Lecture 2.255 WGS special case NZ_ABCD123 45678 GenomicA collection of whole genome shotgun sequence data for a project. Accessions are not tracked between releases. The first four characters following the underscore (e.g. 'ABCD') identifies a genome project. ZP_12345678ProteinProteins annotated on NZ_ accessions (often via computational methods).
