InterPro provides functional analysis of proteins by classifying them into families and predicting domains and important sites. We combine protein signatures from a number of member databases into a single searchable resource, capitalising on their individual strengths to produce a powerful integrated database and diagnostic tool.


  • version 5.20-59.0 in module interproscan-5.20-59.0


module add interproscan-5.20-59.0 -T $SCRATCHDIR -i /path/to/sequences.fasta

By parameter -T is set temporary directory instead of /temp to $SCRATCHDIR (available disk space in /temp is limited). To use this parameter you must request a scratch in job's requirements. Argument -i is path to fasta file that should be loaded.

Number of used processors (workers) is set in the file to 8, so with one master you should request for 9-10 CPUs.
