COMER: Protein remote homology search

COMER is a protein sequence alignment tool designed for protein remote homology detection. It accepts a multiple sequence alignment as input and converts it into the profile to search a profile database for statistically significant similarities. COMER is licensed under the GNU GP License, version 3. Please find its archive file, download and extract it with the command "tar -zxf <archive-name>", and refer to the README file for instructions on how to use the software.

The following directory contains databases of COMER profiles to be searched against with COMER. The databases are in text format. Any profile from a database can be easily extracted and, e.g., searched with COMER against the database (see the `README' file in the COMER installation package).
