ANNOUNCING PFAM RELEASE 8.0
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 8.0 contains 5193 families. 73% of proteins in SWISSPROT 40.31
and TrEMBL 22 have at least one match to a Pfam family.
