ACLAME families are groups of proteins sharing sequence similarity and similar functions.
We assign a functional annotation to those families based on:
  1. existing sequence information
  2. information from similar sequences found in SwissProt, SCOP and NCBI NR databases
  3. experts knowledge
  4. literature

The ACLAME web interface allows to add functional annotations anonymously or as registered user. Such annotation is then validated (or not) by the ACLAME editors.
Comments and suggestions can be posted in this forum about (un)annotated ACLAME families.

Best regards,

the ACLAME team.
