List of model organisms regularly updated in Repository

The proteomes of the following organisms are regularly updated in SWISS-MODEL Repository. A reference proteome is the complete proteome of a representative, well-studied model organism or an organism of interest for biomedical research. Reference proteomes are retrieved from the UniProt database.
