ANNOUNCING PFAM RELEASE 6.5
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 6.5 contains 2929 families. 69% of proteins in SWISSPROT 39
and TrEMBL 14 have at least one match to a Pfam family.
