ID Mapper

Overview

The ID Mapper tool maps PATRIC identifiers to those from other prominent external databases such as GenBank, RefSeq, EMBL, UniProt, KEGG, etc. Alternatively, it can map a list of external database identifiers to the corresponding PATRIC features.

ID Mapping Sources

  • First, PATRIC CDSs (protein coding genes) are mapped to corresponding CDSs in RefSeq/GenBank by matching their stop position on genome sequences.
  • Second, RefSeq/GenBank CDSs are mapped to corresponding UniProtKB Accession.
  • Third, mappings are extended to other prominent external database identifiers using UniProt's ID Mapping Service.

Using the ID Mapper Tool

The ID Mapper submenu option under the Services main menu (Data category) opens the ID Mapper input form (shown below). Note: You must be logged into PATRIC to use this tool.

Options

ID Mapper Input Form

From: Dropdown list for electing which ID type (PATRIC, RefSeq, Uniprot-KB, etc.) to map from (source).

To: Dropdown list for selecting which ID type (PATRIC, RefSeq, Uniprot-KB, etc.) to map to (target).

IDs: Input box for specifying the IDs to map. The IDs can be specified in a comma-separated or one-per-line list.

PATRIC Feature Strategy

This tool uses the Uniprot-KB mapping table to map external IDs to PATRIC. This is done using NCBI IDs. Due to updates over time some NCBI IDs may achieve better mapping results than others.

Buttons

Map: Launches the mapping service, which, upon completion, displays a table below it containing all the matching items (e.g., features, genomes, etc.) that map to the list of IDs provided.
