With ever-increasing amounts of genomic data being generated, most analysis of next generation sequencing data is performed with extensive use of bioinformatics tools. For proper analysis of large experimental datasets, linking to proper resources with adequate unique identifiers (IDs) is critical. However, for protein databases, although numerous genetic and protein databases provide associated unique IDs, due to the polymorphisms and isoforms of proteins used in research, protein sequences can differ among associated databases. As functional domain information is a key element for interpretation of genetic sequence variants, an easily accessible integrated protein domain database is needed. Here we present ProdoDB, a protein domain database providing sequence-matched Swiss-Prot and National Center for Biotechnology Information(NCBI) protein reference sequence unique ID mapping, as well as corresponding sequence information, including gene and domain information, as a REST API service following OpenAPI standards.
