On Monday 28th March 2011 the WSInterProScan service was decommissioned and replaced by the following services:
The service documentation and clients below are historical and provided solely for reference purposes.
InterProScan is a tool that combines different protein signature recognition methods native to the InterPro member databases into one resource with look up of corresponding InterPro and GO annotation. This service allows you to query your protein sequence against InterPro.
For more information about this tool see:
We kindly ask all users of SOAP Web Services to submit jobs in batches of up to 25 sequences at a time and to not submit more until the results and processing has completed for these. This should enable the users as well as the EBI maintainers to deal more easily with local and remote network outages as well as scheduled or unscheduled downtime.
Due to resource limitations the InterProScan service no longer accepts nucleotide sequence submissions.
To process nucleotide sequences using InterProScan:
1. Translate your nucleotide sequence
2. Filter ORFs by sequence length.
3. Significant hits from sequence similarity searches.
Note: the standalone version of InterProScan can perform the translation and ORF length filtering as part of the submission and is recommended if you need to perform large numbers of analysis and have access to the required resources. See InterProScan Readme for details.
Sample clients are provided for a number of programming languages. For details of how to use these clients, download the client and run the program without any arguments.
For further details see WSInterProScan Clients.
