This should be an uncapitalized noun phrase: perhaps something like
"tool to infer structured motifs in biological sequences"

This could also use some rephrasing: how about
SMILE infers structured motifs from multiple DNA or protein sequences
according to a user-specified set of criteria. It handles arbitrary
sequence alphabets, which may even be degenerate.
