Pfam: Quick tour
This quick tour provides a brief introduction to the protein families database Pfam, based at EMBL-EBI. Each protein family is represented by multiple sequence alignments and a profile hidden Markov model, which is used to create a probabilistic model that represents the family.
An undergraduate-level understanding of biology would be an advantage.
