Hidden Markov Models and Protein Sequence Analysis
[University of California – Santa Cruz] (Rachel Karchin) An on-line paper providing an introduction to the sophisticated and flexible statistical model called the hidden Markov model (HMM) and its use as a tool in the study of protein molecules.

Making the most of your hidden Markov models
[University of Califoria, Santa Cruz] (ISMB99 Tutorial Material) This tutorial is intended for people who know what HMMs are but want to know how to use them most effectively. It details the tricks
used in the SAM-T98 method (in 1998 the best method for remote homology detection in proteins). Full text articles are also provided.

[SWBIC] Protein Classification through the Assessment of Predicted Secondary Structure (PCAPSS) is a method for identifying remote protein homologs in the Protein Data Bank that share a similar secondary
structure to the query protein. PCAPSS was designed to be used with orphan or hypothetical proteins, i.e.,
those for which amino acid sequence searches fail to find similar sequences with functional annotation. Its purpose
is to generate hypotheses for structure and function for such hypothetical or putative protein sequences based on
fold recognition.

Sequence Alignment and Modeling System
[University of California – Santa Cruz] (SAM) SAM is a collection of flexible software tools for creating, refining, and using linear hidden Markov models for biological sequence analysis.

[Medical Research Council Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Cambridge] The purpose of this server is to provide structural (and hence implied functional) assignments to protein sequences at the Structural Classification of Proteins (SCOP)
superfamily level. SCOP provides a classification of all proteins in the Protein Data Bank (PDB). Whole genome assignment results are also provided.
