(staff, space, equipment) for Pfam.
The Wellcome Trust has supported Pfam since the database inception,
via core funding when based at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute.
As well as providing and maintaining the campus on which the EMBL-EBI
is located, the Wellcome Trust also now provides significant funding
for Pfam (grant 108433/Z/15/Z). The current grant runs from October
2015 to September 2020.
BBSRC has previously supported Pfam activities via grants
BB/L024136/1 and BB/N00521X/1.
The Howard Hughes Medical Institute supports the Eddy group.
Many organisations have supported Pfam activities in the past.
