Abstract

The PRINTS database houses a collection of protein fingerprints. These may be used to assign unchar-acterised sequences to known families and hence to infer tentative functions. The September 2002 release (version 36.0) includes 1800 fingerprints, encoding 11000 motifs, covering a range of globular and membrane proteins, modular polypep-tides and so on. In addition to its continued steady growth, we report here the development of an automatic supplement, prePRINTS, designed to increase the coverage of the resource and reduce some of the manual burdens inherent in its maintenance. The databases are accessible for interroga-
tion and searching at http://www.bioinf.man.ac.uk/dbbrowser/PRINTS/.
