I have a list of proteins with their gene names/symbols. I would like to identify which of them are extracellular proteins or plasma membrane proteins.
I can get this information in UniprotKB by searching the proteins one by one. Because I have hundreds of proteins, I wonder whether I can do a systematic search of the UniprotKB in RStudio. I tried the UniProt.ws select method. But I couldn't even get the example code in the package work. I downloaded the uniprot_sprot.dat file. But I don't know how to read this file correctly in RStudio. I used tab-delimited format. It turned out there is only one variable in the file.
Can anybody tell me what I should do to solve the problem? I am pretty new to any computer languages.
