This is to announce the second release (v2.0) of the stand-alone
Perl-based InterProScan package (satellite to the oncoming
InterPro v3.0).

InterPro is a collaborative project aimed at providing an
integrated layer on top of the most commonly used protein
signature databases by creating a unique, non-redundant
characterization of a given protein family, domain or functional
site. The InterPro project home page is available at

InterProScan is a tool that scans a given protein sequence(s)
against the InterPro signature databases (at the moment -
PROSITE, PRINTS, Pfam, ProDom and Smart). 
InterProScan has a robust and efficient (parallel) architecture 
that could benefit from network distributed computing and
support of UNIX queuing systems, such as LSF.

InterProScan is available from the EBI's ftp server:
