Net-ID Releases Upgrade Of HMM Pro Software

Premium

LOS ANGELES--Net-ID announced that HMMpro 2.2, the latest release of its Hidden Markov Model simulator for biological sequence analysis, is now available for downloading at

http://www.netid.com. The company said HMMpro's graphical user interface allows users to interactively build, fine-tune, and analyze models of protein families or DNA functional elements. The models can be used for multiple alignments, pattern discovery, and sensitive datamining. Highlights of the new version include support for editing individual emission and transition weights, the ability to fix emission or transition weights on a node-by-node basis during training, and support for importing and exporting HMMER 2.x models. Thirty-day evaluation copies are available to all users.
