The HMM2 plugin is a toolkit based on the Sean Eddy’s HMMER2 package.
While working on this plugin we were guided by the following principles:
- Make the HMMER2 tools accessible to a wider user audience by providing graphical interface for all supported utilities for most of the platforms.
- Be compatible with the original HMMER2 package.
- Create the high-performance solution utilizing modern multi-core processors and SIMD instructions.
In the original program the corresponding commands are: “hmmbuild”, “hmmcalibrate” and “hmmsearch”.
To access these tools select the Tools ‣ HMMER2 tools submenu of the program main menu:
We highly recommend reading the original HMMER2 documentation to learn how to use utilities provided by the plugin.
