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 designed to detect remote homologs as sensitively as possible, relying on the strength of its underlying probability models.
