A hidden Markov model (HMM) approach was used to identify potential candidates in sequence databases for fibronectin type III domains in plants, a kingdom heretofore bereft of these structures. Fortuitously, one of the proteins uncovered had already had a crystal structure published, allowing direct structural confirmation of the existence of this domain in plants.
