                ANNOUNCING PFAM RELEASE 5.5
                ===========================


Pfam is a collection of protein domain family alignments which were
constructed semi-automatically using profile hidden Markov models.
Pfam families contain functional annotation and cross-references to
other databases.  Query sequences can be searched against the Pfam
library of profile hidden Markov models at the web sites below.

Pfam 5.5 contains 2478 families.  68% of proteins in SWISSPROT 38
and TrEMBL 11 have at least one match to a Pfam family.
