ANNOUNCING PFAM RELEASE 7.3
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 7.3 contains 3849 families. 71% of proteins in SWISSPROT 40
and TrEMBL 18 have at least one match to a Pfam family.
For interactive access and searching see URLs
The release is also available in flat file by anonymous ftp:
The Pfam HMM library is compatible with HMMER2 software, available
and also the Wise2 software, available from
The Pfam consortium
