PA2M file extension - SAM alignment file
What is pa2m file? How to open pa2m files?
File type specification:
The PA2M file extension is associated with SAM (Sequence Alignment and Modeling system) and used for alignment files that alternates sequences and posterior probability annotations in sequence format, as created by pathprobs.

The 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.
List of recommended software applications associated to the .pa2m file extension
Recommended software programs are sorted by OS platform (Windows, Mac OS X etc.) and possible program actions
that can be done with the file: like open pa2m file, edit pa2m file, convert pa2m file, view pa2m file, play pa2m file etc. (if exist software for corresponding action in File-Extensions.org's database).

Sequence Alignment and Modeling system uses pa2m file type for its internal purposes and/or also by different way than common edit or open file actions (eg. to install/execute/support an application itself, to store application or user data, configure program etc.).
