The HAMAP families are a collection of orthologous microbial protein families, generated manually by expert curators. They are used for the high-quality automatic annotation of microbial proteomes in the framework of the Swiss-Prot protein knowledgebase. Each family
is composed of the following data:
- Annotation that is propagated to member entries (e.g. protein name, keywords).
- Computed features (e.g. export signals, transmembrane regions) that may be applied to entries by using
appropriate prediction programs.
- Alignments of a representative set of entries. There is usually a single alignment per family, unless there is a 'deep split' between bacterial and archaeal entries.
- Profiles in PROSITE format that are automatically generated from the alignments and serve for the identification
of new members in complete microbial proteomes.
The wildcards * and ? are supported.
