Dear TreeFam Developers,

I hope this email finds you well. I am a researcher interested in conducting protein family analysis using the alignment data from TreeFam. However, when downloading the compressed alignment package from the TreeFam website, I found that the data is missing for many protein families. Additionally, the alignment files are sometimes unavailable from the download link on individual family pages. (

I would like to perform comprehensive analyses across all protein families in TreeFam. Is there a way for me to access or request the full set of alignment data for all families? I checked the documentation but did not see any mention of obtaining a complete dataset.

Your database has been extremely useful for my research so far. I would greatly appreciate if you could point me in the right direction for accessing a full alignment dataset. Please let me know if there are any other steps I need to take or policies to follow.

Thank you for your consideration and for all the work you do in maintaining TreeFam. I look forward to hearing back from you.

Regards, Ian Chen
