The National Center for Biotechnology Information collects and curates thousands of protein sequences and related information, so it’s a great place to start if you need information fast.

Step 1: Go to the library homepage at and click the PubMed@Tufts link.

Step 2: In the search box type: “ProteinName AND OrganismName[organism]” and select Protein from the dropdown menu on the left. Click search.


Step 3: Filter by RefSeq on the top right. (These are all standardized and approved protein sequences.)


Step 4: Click on a record of interest.

Step 5: Explore! The links in the right column allow you to find information about the coding gene, see conserved domains, find species with homologous genes, view 3D protein structures, view pathways that contain the protein (often from KEGG), and much more!
