# Converting hmmer --tblout to pandas dataframe [closed]

Is there a way to convert a hmmer output to a pandas dataframe? I am also unsure how to load a hmmer tblout table into python via the Bio module. I believe you can call a hmmer format with SeqIO.parse or SeqIO.search. How can you convert the table to a pandas dataframe?

The manual says fields in a tabular output file are space-delimited. It should be fairly straightforward to load a space-delimited file in pandas.

From the manual:

--tblout <f> Save a simple tabular (space-delimited) file summarizing the per-target output, with one data line per homologous target model found.
