About Mutation@A Glance

Mutation@A Glance is an integrated viewer for genetic variations including disease-causing mutations, cancer-related mutations and natural variants in human genes. This tool facilitates analyzing genetic variants occurred in genes of interest at DNA- or Protein sequence level, as well as Protein 3D structure level. Mutation@A Glance hence facilitates understanding of impacts of genetic variations on the gene functions in human diseases.

The web app was originally established by a joint international collaboration between the RIKEN Research Center for Allergy and Immunology (currently Center for Integrative Medical Sciences), Japan and Institute of Bioinformatics, India funded by Special Collaboration Funds for the Promotion of Science and Technology in Japan. The website is hosted and maintained at Nagahama Institute of Bio-Science and Technology, Japan supported by Basis for Supporting Innovative Drug Discovery and Life Science Research (BINDS), Japan Agency for Medical Research and Development.
