The Bioinformatics Research Group of the University of Texas Health Center at
Tyler is pleased to announce the availability of its ProClass Database Server
for protein family information retrieval at:

     http://diana.uthct.edu/proclass.html

The ProClass database is a non-redundant protein database organized according
to family relationships as defined collectively by ProSite patterns and PIR
superfamilies. The ProClass database can facilitate protein family information
retrieval, unveil domain and family relationships, and classify multi-domained
proteins, by combining global and motif similarities into a single family
organization scheme.

The server provides on-line ID/keyword search for ProClass record retrieval, 
with hypertext links to SwissProt, ProSite and PIR databases. Free copies of 
the ProClass database can be obtained via anonymous FTP to:

     ftp://diana.uthct.edu/pub/ProClass/ 

Please cite the following reference in publications that benefit from the
ProClass database:

     organized with ProSite protein groups and PIR superfamilies. Journal of
     Computational Biology, 3(4), 547-561.

I am looking forward to hearing from you!
