HMMER: biosequence analysis using profile hidden Markov models

HMMER is used for searching sequence databases for sequence homologs,
and for making sequence alignments. It implements methods using
probabilistic models called profile hidden Markov models (profile HMMs).

HMMER is often used together with a profile database, such as Pfam or
many of the databases that participate in Interpro. But HMMER can also
work with query sequences, not just profiles, just like BLAST. For
example, you can search a protein query sequence against a database with
phmmer, or do an iterative search with jackhmmer.

HMMER is designed to detect remote homologs as sensitively as possible,
relying on the strength of its underlying probability models. In the
past, this strength came at significant computational expense, but as
of the new HMMER3 project, HMMER is now essentially as fast as BLAST.
