phmmer description

Phmmer is used to search one or more query protein sequences against a protein sequence database. For each query sequence in , use that sequence to search the target database of sequences in , and output ranked lists of the sequences with the most significant matches to the query


Parent program: hmmer

HMMER software allows search for protein homologs and also permits multiple protein sequence alignment. Unlike BLAST, HMMER uses probabilistic models called profile hidden Markov models which provide a significantly more accurate and more sensitive detection of remote homologs. The HMMER software suite has been widely used, particularly for protein family databases such as Pfam and InterPro and their associated search tools. Also HMMER has several programs for protein sequence analysis such as phmmer, hmmscan, hmmsearch and jackhmmer.
