                 ANNOUNCING PFAM RELEASE 11.0
                 ===========================


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 11.0 contains 7255 families.  75% of proteins in SWISSPROT 41.25
and TrEMBL 24.14 have at least one match to a Pfam family.
