HMMERHEAD

Intro

HMMs have been proven useful in protein sequence analysis. However, a full search of a sequence database using an HMM is computationally expensive. HMMERHEAD is a software package, incorporated into the HMMER HMM suite, that efficiently filters out most of the unrelated sequences while retaining nearly all related ones.
