Welcome to the Xfam blog

January 19, 2009

Welcome to the new blog for the Xfam databases ! Xfam is our shorthand for the combination of Pfam and Rfam databases, which we note will also future-proof us, in case we add any further databases to the brand.

We hope that this blog will become a useful point of reference, where our users can learn about what is going on behind the scenes at Xfam central. We will be announcing some important changes that are coming with the eagerly awaited release of HMMER 3. As well as announcing new releases of the data and website, we’ll also try to discuss our philosophy on protein/RNA domains and sequence classification. If there are other topics that you would like to hear more about, why not leave us a comment.
