Ideas to create code to fill in values from online database

So I have some proteomics data where in my dataframe I have a column for protein ID (a specific code that is assigned to a protein) and the protein name. There are several rows that don't have a protein name that I would like to fill in. I was wondering if it was possible to write an R code that would take the protein id and search it against the database on Uniprot and fill in the corresponding protein name. I'm somewhat new to R and so I just need some ideas on where to start.


You might want to check out the package on Bioconductor. It provides an interface between the API and R, and I'm pretty sure you can find what you need with it.

Hope this helps,
