HMMER Profile File Format

The profile hidden Markov Model (HMM) calculated from multiple sequence alignment data in this service is stored in Profile HMM save format (usually with ".hmm" extension). It is an ASCII file containing a lot of header and descriptive records followed by large numerical matrix which holds a probabilistic model of the motif. The file of this format is useful to search against sequence databases to find other proteins which share the same motif.
