InterProScan 5

InterProScan is a tool that provides automated functional analysis of protein and nucleic acid sequences, the latter via a full six-frame translation. It offers the ability to identify both structural and functional regions of interest, based upon methods and models that have been generated by a large number of contributing resources ('member databases'). These member databases use a variety of different bioinformatic techniques and algorithms, optimised for specific feature types. InterProScan is therefore able to offer the researcher the ability to quickly characterize a new or novel sequence with considerable confidence.
