External references

Answer: 

Genes, transcripts, and proteins are matched to sequences and information in other biological databases. The matches are referred to as external references, or Xrefs.

Xref sources for VectorBase genes include UniProtKB, EntrezGene, PubMed & Community symbols/descriptions.

Xref sources for VectorBase transcripts (i.e. matches to transcript and protein sequences) include UniProtKB, EntrezGene, and NCBI RefSeq.

Please see the General identifiers view in the transcript tab for more IDs associated with a specific transcript and/or protein.
