Secondary Structure Mutation Analysis Tool
is an application that provides a user
friendly interface for analyzing the effects of point mutations on RNAs
As with proteins, mutations in RNAs have potential
to alter functionality in important biological processes. Predictions of selective
mutations can be performed based on the assumption that structure relates to function. Detecting
mutations with desired structural effects among all possible point mutations may
therefore be valuable and can be tested experimentally.
Currently, RNAMute is available on a Linux platform.
