Detailed overview:
SUPERFAMILY database of structural and functional protein annotations for all completely sequenced organisms
Title: SUPERFAMILY database of structural and functional protein annotations for all completely sequenced organisms
Title abbreviated: SUPERFAMILY
Title alternative: Superfamily - HMM library and genome assignments server
Creator: Gough, Julian; et al.
Abstract: SUPERFAMILY is a database of structural and functional annotation for all proteins and genomes. The SUPERFAMILY annotation is based on a collection of hidden Markov models, which represent structural protein domains at the SCOP superfamily level. A superfamily groups together domains which have an evolutionary relationship. The annotation is produced by scanning protein sequences from over 2,414 completely sequenced genomes against the hidden Markov models. For each protein you can: a) Submit sequences for SCOP classification; b) View domain organisation, sequence alignments and protein sequence details For each genome you can: a) Examine superfamily assignments, phylogenetic trees, domain organisation lists and networks; b) Check for over- and under-represented superfamilies within a genome For each superfamily you can: a) Inspect SCOP classification, functional annotation, Gene Ontology annotation, InterPro abstract and genome assignments; b) Explore taxonomic distribution of a superfamily across the tree of life All annotation, models and the database dump are freely available for download to everyone. SUPERFAMILY is a member of the InterPro consortium of protein annotation databases, and has been integrated into the Ensembl eukaryotic genome project and The Arabidopsis Information Resource. To date, the SUPERFAMILY publications have been cited over 1,000 times. SUPERFAMILY has been used in structural, functional, evolutionary and phylogenetic research projects.
