We greatly appreciate the contribution made to Pfam from our user community. To acknowledge these contributions, and allow them to be an integral part of researchers’ profiles, we have in corporated ORCID identifiers, displaying these in the ‘curation and model’ tab of each Pfam entry.

To claim Pfam entries against your ORCID, first go to the EMBL-EBI website and search by putting your ORCID into the search box and selecting ‘Protein Families’ from the drop down.


From the results page, navigate to Pfam and you should then see a link at the top of the results inviting you to ‘Claim to ORCID’. Click this and you will then be taken to the ORCID site to authenticate.
