COMA (Comparison Of Multiple Alignments) is a method for detection of distant evolutionary relationship (homology) through comparison of multiple protein sequence alignments. For convenience, the COMA software package includes programs for constructing profiles from multiple alignments, generating a profile database from a set of profiles, searching a profile (multiple alignment) against a profile database, etc. COMA output consists of pairwise alignments between profiles (multiple alignments) with estimated values of statistical significance, which indicates the probability that the aligned pair of profiles is a random match.
