  • HMM library/toolbox wanted

    I am planning to extend my existing software by using HMMs in some modeling step. Therefore I looked for some existing libs. I have found GHMM (http://www.ghmm.org/) and HTK (http://htk.eng.cam.ac.uk/), but haven't tested them yet.

    Did anyone try using these, or possibly some other libraries? Are they easy to use and comprehensive? My existing software is in C++, so it would be best to use C/C++ libs. But if there is an outstanding Python/Perl/Matlab/R toolbox I can turn my eye on it.

    It depends what you want to do. I've looked at HMMlib (http://www.cs.au.dk/~asand/?page_id=152) as well as GHMM but didn't seriously use either.

    If all you need is something that will take a transition matrix and vector of emission probabilities, then any of them should be fine. I've never found a library that attempts to handle anything more complicated like sparse or time-dependent transition matrices or custom array/matrix classes, and have had to write my own library for things like that.

      Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
      by seqadmin


      Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...

      Strategies for Sequencing Challenging Samples
      by seqadmin


      Despite advancements in sequencing platforms and related sample preparation technologies, certain sample types continue to present significant challenges that can compromise sequencing results. Pedro Echave, Senior Manager of the Global Business Segment at Revvity, explained that the success of a sequencing experiment ultimately depends on the amount and integrity of the nucleic acid template (RNA or DNA) obtained from a sample. “The better the quality of the nucleic acid isolated...
