The GPM is currently configured to use proteomes from a variety of sources, mainly EBI's ENSEMBL and NCBI's RefSeq.
The current sequence files associated with
GPM can be obtained by FTP at ftp.thegpm.org/fasta. These file versions
are updated when a significant number of new sequences are added (or removed) from a particular species' proteome.
All sequences obtained from Unigene are updated every Monday evening, at 22:00 CST.
are updated from NCBI, when significant new species are added.
Viral proteomes are updated from NCBI, as necessary.
Viral proteomes were first added to the GPM on August 5, 2009.
In addition to the proteomes listed, a small collection of common contaminant and "test" proteins is
included. These proteins include bovine and porcine trypsin and bovine serum albumin. If you would like to see
any other contaminants included in this collection, please click here.
