What is InterPro?


InterPro is a bioinformatics resource that provides functional analysis of protein sequences by classifying them into families and predicting the presence of domains and important sites (Figure 1). To classify proteins in this way, InterPro uses predictive models, known as signatures, provided by several different databases (referred to as member databases) that make up the InterPro Consortium.
