RNAmmer predicts ribosomal RNA genes in full genome sequences by util-ising two levels of Hidden Markov Models: An initial spotter model searches both strands. The spotter model is constructed from highly conserved loci within a structural alignment of known rRNA sequences. Once the spotter model detects an approximate position of a gene, flanking regions are extracted and parsed to the full model which matches the entire gene. By enabling a two-level approach it is avoided to run a full model through an entire genome sequence allowing faster predictions.
