When to use InterPro
- what they are - the family to which they belong
- what their function is and how it can be explained in structural terms
You can also use InterPro for a variety of other purposes, such as predicting GO terms for a set of sequences, or identifying all sequences in the UniProtKB database that are predicted to belong to a given family or to possess a particular domain.
When not to use InterPro
InterPro cannot help you if:
- you want to perform structural alignment of protein sequences
- you have a genomic DNA sequence and are interested in gene annotation (intron / exon predictions, identification of promoter regions, etc)
