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
Two posters describe HMMERHEAD. The first version was described in
RECOMB 2004: abstract,

hmmerhead 0.6 Release Notes
- Fixed bug causing the hmmsearch to (sometimes) crash when no sequence passed filtering.
- In hmmer-2.3.2 + hmmerhead 0.5, debug versions printing debug information to stderr were accidently used. Changed those to the release versions.
- Removed a file accidently added to the OBJS list in src/Makefile.in of hmmer 2.5.1
