Powering down the Pfam website
On October 5th, we began redirecting traffic from Pfam (pfam.xfam.org) to InterPro (www.ebi.ac.uk/interpro). The Pfam website will remain available at pfam-legacy.xfam.org until January 2023, when it will be decommissioned. You can read more about the sunset period in our blog post.

About Pfam

Pfam version 35.0 was produced at the European Bioinformatics Institute using a sequence database called Pfamseq, which is based on UniProt release 2021_03.

Pfam is freely available under the Creative Commons Zero ("CC0") licence.

Pfam is powered by the HMMER3 package written by Sean Eddy and his group at HHMI/ Harvard University, and built by the Xfam consortium.
