SUPERFAMILY License Registration

If you have read and understood the license agreement, then please fill in the form below.

On acceptance of registration the MRC will grant the Licensee, a non-exclusive license and right to use the SUPERFAMILY package, and to access any changes and updates.
The SUPERFAMILY package does not include all of the software required to use the models. This must be obtained from elsewhere; users are advised to consider HMMER3.

Having a dedicated user list is a strong bargaining tool for grant proposals and requests for hardware. We do not share, sell or rent your personal information to third parties - ever.
