MaxMod is a standalone Graphical User Interface (GUI) of the MODELLER program which combines profile Hidden Markov Model (profile HMM) method with Clustal Omega for the construction of protein homology models. Our program distinguishes itself from other existing GUI-based MODELLER tools by implementing effortless modeling of protein structure using template structures that bears modified residues.

Design and Development

The GUI of MaxMod is developed using Visual Studio .NET 2.0 with C# as the page language. The Architecture of MaxMod is divided into 3 different layers i.e. (a) Presentation Layer (b) Business Layer (c) Data Access Layer.


  • HMM based remote homologous template search
  • Integrated Clustal Omega program for target-template alignment
