Net-ID Will Release HMMpro 1.0, a Hidden Markov Model Simulator


LOS ANGELES--Bioinformatics software company Net-ID here will soon release its first product, HMMpro 1.0, a new, multiplatform hidden Markov model (HMM) simulator that includes a Java graphical user interface. Among other features the software will support multiple HMM architectures and multiple learning algorithms. It will be able to mine data from standard bioinformatics databases, view classification results immediately, and compute or visualize more that 50 protein state functions.

The software was previewed at Paracel's booth at the recent Computational Genomics conference. Net-ID has identified Paracel's new GeneMatcher accelerator as a good fit with its product, and the two companies will soon announce a marketing collaboration. A Paracel executive called HMMpro 1.0 "the most mature HMM builder on the market" and said GeneMatcher is the "perfect thing to run HMM's on."
