We kindly ask all users of EMBL-EBI Web Services to submit tool jobs in batches of up to 30 at a time and to not submit more until the results and processing has completed for these. This enables users as well as the service maintainers to deal more easily with local and remote network outages as well as scheduled or unscheduled downtime.
If you are planning on systematically processing many sequences using this service please see InterProScan Web Service FAQ.
To process nucleotide sequences using InterProScan 4.x:
