   ==============================================================
  ANNOUNCING THE UPGRADE AND RELOCATION OF
  THE PROTEIN INFORMATION RESOURCE WEB SITE.

  http://pir.georgetown.edu/
   ==============================================================

PIR-International maintains the largest, comprehensive, annotated and
non-redundant set of protein sequence databases in the public domain.
Entries in the Protein Sequence Database are classified into family
groups and alignments of each group are available. The PIR Web site has
been upgraded with new search tools, graphical interfaces and new
databases. Come take a look.

   NEW PROTEIN SEARCH AND ANALYSIS TOOLS INCLUDE:
    http://pir.georgetown.edu/pirwww/search/

 * BLAST Searches: Search databases, view full-length alignments of top
scores.

 * Annotation-Sorted Similarity Search: Sort BLAST output by annotation,
view multiple alignments.

 * Pattern Searches: Search using pre-defined or user-defined protein
patterns.

 * GeneFIND Classification: Match to PIR superfamilies & ProSite
patterns.

 * Interactive Text Searches: Search text, view results, then refine the
list.

 * Pairwise and Multiple Sequence Alignment Tools.

   PROTEIN DATABASES AVAILABLE INCLUDE:
    http://pir.georgetown.edu/pirwww/dbinfo/

 * Protein Sequence Database (PSD): Annotated, non-redundant database.

 * PIR-ALN: Alignments of superfamily, family, and homology domains.

 * NRL_3D: Sequences & annotation from the Protein DataBank of 3-D
structures.

 * RESID: Database of amino acid modifications.

 * FAMBASE: Database of sequences representing individual protein
families.

 * PATCHX: Non-redundant database of sequences not yet in the PSD.

 * PIR+PATCHX: Most complete collection of non-redundant sequences
available.

 * ProClass: Organized by family relationships as defined by PIR and
ProSite.

 * ARCHIVE: Protein sequences as originally reported.
