MULT file extension - SAM Alignment output data

What is mult file? How to open mult files?

File type specification:

Various data file type icon Various data file type

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

The .mult files are one of two multiple domain alignment output files created by hmmscore. The .mult files contain all alignments to a motif that were found.

The default software associated to open mult 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:

Use SAM to work with *.mult files.

How to convert:

As far as we know, this .mult 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.
