What is colors file? How to open colors files?

File type specification:

Various data file type icon Various data file type

The colors file extension is associated with SAM (Sequence Alignment and Modeling system).

The .colors files contain color data for the makelogo program, usually located in the same directory as the Dirichlet priors.

The default software associated to colors file type:

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 COLORS files:

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 file with extension COLORS:

As far as we know, this .colors 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.
