The ProtoNet site provides an automatic hierarchical clustering of the SWISS-PROT protein database. The clustering is based on an all-against-all BLAST similarity search. The similarities' E-score is used to perform a continuous bottom-up clustering process by applying alternative rules for merging clusters. The outcome of this clustering process is a(More)
ProtoNet is an automatic hierarchical classification of the protein sequence space. In 2004, the ProtoNet (version 4.0) presents the analysis of over one million proteins merged from SwissProt and TrEMBL databases. In addition to rich visualization and analysis tools to navigate the clustering hierarchy, we incorporated several improvements that allow a(More)

Trends in the foreign population in West Germany since 1987 are examined. Data are from the Central Register of Foreigners and the 1987 census. Information is included on methodological problems, population size, foreigners as a percentage of the total population, births and deaths, international migration, refugees, regional distribution, and nationality.
The first part of this article contains data on the foreign population in West Germany in 1989, along with some comparative statistics for earlier years. Information is included on population size, births and deaths, international migration, refugees, regional distribution, nationality, and age structure. The second part provides summary statistics on(More)
The authors examine recent population growth in the Federal Republic of Germany and present population statistics, the most recent of which are for 1986. A section on natural increase includes information on marriages and marriage age; births, including data on national origin; mothers' age structure; deaths, including stillbirths and infant deaths; births(More)
