I am trying to use HMMER for the first time. I installed it as per instructions in the user guide, using anaconda:

conda install -c bioconda hmmer

However, now I want to run through the tutorial, and there is no tutorial directory in the HMMER directory installed. There are 9 directories or subdirectories installed, none of them labelled tutorial, yet the HMMER user guide clearly states there should be on.

Tap, tap; is this thing on? In the tutorial subdirectory, globins4.sto is an example of a basic Stockholm alignment file. hmmbuild builds a profile from an alignment:

Has anyone encountered a similar isssue? If so how did you work around it?

Conda doesn't package code the same way the creator makes it. It basically creates the necessary binaries and preserves their dependencies in its own directory structure. You will have to go into the conda directory $CONDADIR/env/hmmer and search each sub directory for the tutorials folder. There is a chance it won't be there. As @Mensur Dlakic mentioned, you can download them from the website and specifying the tutorial absolute path.

Not sure what conda does, but if everything else fails you can always download the files directly:

There is a prominent button there that says "Download source" and after unpacking there will be a tutorial directory.

conda is a python environment manager and its repository (channel) bioconda hosts premade environments of bioinformatic software.
