       hmmalign - align sequences to a profile HMM


       hmmalign [options] <hmmfile> <seqfile>


       Perform  a  multiple sequence alignment of all the sequences in <seqfile> by aligning them
       individually to the profile HMM in <hmmfile>.  The new alignment is output  to  stdout  in
       Stockholm format.

       The  <hmmfile>  should  contain only a single profile. If it contains more, only the first
       profile in the file will be used.

       Either <hmmfile> or <seqfile> (but not both) may be '-' (dash), which means  reading  this
       input from stdin rather than a file.

       The  sequences  in  <seqfile>  are aligned in unihit local alignment mode.  Therefore they
       should already be known to contain only a single domain  (or  a  fragment  of  one).   The
       optimal  alignment  may  assign  some residues as nonhomologous (N and C states), in which
       case these residues are still included in the resulting alignment, but shoved to the outer
       edges.  To  trim  these  unaligned  nonhomologous residues from the result, see the --trim


       -h     Help; print a brief reminder of command line usage and all available options.

       -o <f> Direct the output alignment to file <f>, rather than to stdout.

       --mapali <f>
              Merge the existing alignment in file <f> into the result, where <f> is exactly  the
              same alignment that was used to build the model in <hmmfile>.  This is done using a
              map of alignment columns to consensus profile  positions  that  is  stored  in  the
              <hmmfile>.   The  multiple  alignment  in  <f>  will  be  exactly reproduced in its
              consensus columns (as defined by the  profile),  but  the  displayed  alignment  in
              insert  columns  may  be  altered,  because  insertions  relative  to a profile are
              considered by convention to be unaligned data.

       --trim Trim nonhomologous residues (assigned to N and C states in the optimal  alignments)
              from the resulting multiple alignment output.

              Specify  that all sequences in <seqfile> are proteins. By default, alphabet type is
              autodetected from looking at the residue composition.

       --dna  Specify that all sequences in <seqfile> are DNAs.

       --rna  Specify that all sequences in <seqfile> are RNAs.

       --informat <s>
              Declare that the input <seqfile> is in format <s>.  Accepted sequence file  formats
              include  FASTA,  EMBL,  GenBank, DDBJ, UniProt, Stockholm, and SELEX. Default is to
              autodetect the format of the file.

       --outformat <s>
              Specify that the output  multiple  alignment  is  in  format  <s>.   Currently  the
              accepted multiple alignment sequence file formats only include Stockholm and SELEX.
