"SIMAP is a database of protein similarities and protein domains. It contains about all currently published protein sequences and is continuously updated. Protein similarities are computed using the FASTA algorithm which provides optimal speed and sensitivity. Protein domains are calculated using the InterPro methods and databases. SIMAP is to our knowledge the only project that combines comprehensive coverage with respect to all known proteins and incremental update capabilities."http://boincsimap.org/boincsimap/

During the last week we have imported more than 5.5 million new proteins into SIMAP. This was due to a major change in the structure of the NCBI RefSeq database, which is covered by SIMAP.
The workunits for these many new protein sequences will be available from Sun, Sep 1. Due to the unusually many new proteins we expect about three months of continuous work for SIMAP.
