Mutation Analysis

We help researchers to analyze how a mutation may affect  the protein structure and function.

We model the structure of the mutated protein and compare it to the wild-type structure. ​We also build multiple sequence alignments to identify the degree of conservation of a point mutation.


For example:

  • A novel MKRN3 missense mutation causing familial precocious puberty. de Vries L, Gat-Yablonski G, Dror N, Singer A, Phillip M. Hum Reprod. 2014 Dec;29(12):2838-43 (Abstract) (Full Text)
