An a2m file extension is associated with the SAM (Sequence Alignment and Modeling Software System). An a2m file contains alignment data.

There is one other file type using
the A2M file extension!

A2M file extension - SAM alignment data

What is a2m file? How to open a2m files?

A SAM (Sequence Alignment and Modeling Software System) alignment file, as created by align2model or hmmscore. A FASTA-compatible format.

Most likely some old format without support. No further information could be found.

This a2m file type entry was marked as obsolete and no longer supported file format.

This type of file is no longer actively used and is most likely obsolete. This is typically the case for system files in old operating systems, file types from long discontinued software, or previous versions of certain file types (like documents, projects etc.) that were replaced in higher versions of their original programs.

The default software associated to open a2m file:

Sequence Alignment and Modeling system  Linux/Unix software

Company or developer:
Richard Hughey - Kevin Karplus - Anders Krogh

Sequence Alignment and Modeling system (SAM) is a collection of fsoftware tools for creating, refining, and using linear hidden Markov models for biological sequence analysis.

The model states can be viewed as representing the sequence of columns in a multiple sequence alignment, with provisions for arbitrary position-dependent insertions and deletions in each sequence. The models are trained on a family of protein or nucleic acid sequences using an expectation-maximization algorithm and a variety of algorithmic heuristics. A trained model can then be used to both generate multiple alignments and search databases for new members of the family.

Help how to open:

This file type is not meant to be opened directly, there is no software that could open and work with it directly, or there is no information available in public sources about opening this file type. This is usually the case of some internal data files, caches, temporary files etc.

How to convert:

As far as we know, this .a2m file type can't be converted to any other file format. This is usually the case of system, configuration, temporary, or data files containing data exclusive to only one software and used for its own purposes. Also some proprietary or closed file formats cannot be converted to more common file types in order to protect the intellectual property of the developer, which is for example the case of some DRM-protected multimedia files.
