In recent years, there have been advances in bioinformatics that makes sequence analysis more powerful. One very important tool is the hidden markov model (HMM). We have used HMM to find frequently occurring domains in cadherins and then we used the domain layouts to help us sub-classify. Also, we implemented the taxonomy in a web-enabled interface.

Protein Search: Search your protein sequence for commonly occuring domains in cadherins. For both sequence similarity and domain layout, the program will predict a possible family for the protein.
