Sequence searching

To search InterPro with a protein sequence, copy and paste an amino acid sequence into the large box on the home page and click on the search button located below the box (Figure 11). InterPro will then attempt to assign the sequence to a protein family and identify any domains, repeats and sites.

Once the analysis is complete, a results page will be returned showing the InterPro matches to your query sequence in graphical form (Figure 12). Next we will look at interpreting these results to understand what they mean, using a guided example.
