SEGMER is a segmental threading algorithm designed to recoginzing substructure motifs from the Protein Data Bank (PDB) library. It first splits target sequences into segments which consists of 2-4 consecutive or non-consecutive secondary structure elements (alpha-helix, beta-strand). The sequence segments are then threaded through the PDB to identify conserved substructures. It often identifies better conserved structure motifs than the whole-chain threading methods, especially when there is no similar global fold existing in the PDB.
