       hmmstat - summary statistics for a profile file


       hmmstat [options] hmmfile


       The  hmmstat  utility  prints out a tabular file of summary statistics for each profile in

       hmmfile may be '-' (a dash character), in which case profiles are read from a  stdin  pipe
       instead of from a file.

       The columns are:

       idx    The index of this profile, numbering each profile in the file starting from 1.

       name   The name of the profile.

              The optional accession of the profile, or "-" if there is none.

       nseq   The number of sequences that the profile was estimated from.

              The  effective number of sequences that the profile was estimated from, after HMMER
              applied an effective sequence  number  calculation  such  as  the  default  entropy

       M      The length of the model in consensus residues (match states).

       relent Mean  relative  entropy per match state, in bits. This is the expected (mean) score
              per consensus position. This is  what  the  default  entropy-weighting  method  for
              effective  sequence number estimation focuses on, so for default HMMER3 models, you
              expect this value to reflect the default target for entropy-weighting.

       info   Mean  information  content  per  match  state,  in  bits.   Probably  not   useful.
              Information content is a slightly different calculation than relative entropy.

       p relE Mean  positional  relative entropy, in bits.  This is a fancier version of the per-
              match-state   relative   entropy,    taking    into    account    the    transition
              (insertion/deletion)  probabilities;  it  may  be a more accurate estimation of the
              average score contributed per model consensus position.

       compKL Kullback-Leibler divergence from the default background frequency  distribution  to
              the  average  composition  of  the  profile's consensus match states, in bits.  The
              higher this number, the more biased the residue  composition  of  the  profile  is.
              Highly  biased  profiles  can slow the HMMER3 acceleration pipeline, by causing too
              many nonhomologous sequences to pass the filters.
