  • Filling out the template is required. Any pull request that does not include enough information to be reviewed in a timely manner may be closed at the maintainers' discretion;
  • Review the contributing guidelines for this repository; remember in particular:
    • do not modify code without testing for regression
    • provide simple unit tests to test the changes
    • if you change the schema you must patch the test databases as well, see Updating the schema
    • the PR must not fail unit testing


Using one or more sentences, describe in detail the proposed changes. Add direct mappings to Uniprot isoforms, in addition to the existing mappings to the canonical accession

Use case

Describe the problem. Please provide an example representing the motivation behind the need for having these changes in place. A single Uniprot accession can contain multiple sequences, mapping to different Ensembl transcripts Adding the mappings to the specific isoform allows us to identify which of these sequences is an exact match to the equivalent Ensembl peptide


If applicable, describe the advantages the changes will have. More specific information available for users

Possible Drawbacks

If applicable, describe any possible undesirable consequence of the changes.


Have you added/modified unit tests to test the changes?

If so, do the tests pass/fail?

Have you run the entire test suite and no regression was detected? The change was tested on human and it has successfully added additional xref mappings to this new sources without changing existing xrefs
