EpiMut: Alignment-independent tool for functional annotation of amino acid substitutions in epigenetic factors

EpiMut is software for functional annotation of AASs in epigenetic factors that is independent from sequence alignments and homology search. It is based on the biochemical and physicochemical characteristics of amino acids and digital signal processing approach in protein sequence analysis. EpiMut is a command line application that provides prediction scores for AASs in 19 epigenetic factors – ARID1A, ASXL1, ATM, ATRX, BCOR, CREBBP, DNMT3A, EP300, EZH2, JAK2, KMT2A, KMT2C, KMT2D, NSD1, SETD2, SF3B1, SPEN, TET2, TP53. It classifies AAS as neutral or disease-related. EpiMut models were generated for each gene separately and they represent Naïve Bayes classifiers trained on the EpiMut dataset (link).

EpiMut is written in JAVA language and is available as standalone application, which can be executed on any operating system containing Java Virtual Machine. In order to run the EpiMut program it is necessary to install Java Runtime Environment 8 (JRE), which can be found for Windows, Linux, Mac OS and Solaris systems at: Java SE Runtime Environment 8 - Downloads
