o About this software...
   HMMER is an implementation of profile HMM methods for
   sensitive database searches using multiple sequence alignments as

   Basically, you give HMMER a multiple sequence alignment as input;
   it builds a statistical model called a "hidden Markov model"
   which you can then use as a query into a sequence database
   to find (and/or align) additional homologues of the sequence family.

I. DsTool Program Description

There is a critical need for computational environments that provide
effective tools for exploring dynamical systems with minimal effort on the
part of the user.  Research that relies upon the investigation of
dynamical systems would be greatly enhanced by a standard, uniform
environment for the exploration of these systems with computers.

The explosion of the graphical computational capabilities of relatively
in- expensive desktop computers in the past few years makes the
development of such an environment both feasible and timely.  The program
described here, called DsTool (pronounced dee-ess-TOOL), describes an
implementation of one such environment for the Sun UNIX workstation.  It
is an efficient research tool that integrates a friendly graphical user
interface, data management capabilities, a rich set of numerical
algorithms together with the flexibility to add more algorithms and
communicate data with other programs.  DsTool has been implemented for use
with the X Window system from MIT and is based upon the program kaos,
written by S. Kim and J. Guckenheimer.

An experimental release that uses Tcl/Tk for its user interface has been
placed in the subdirectory Version_tk.
