Summary: Recent advances in sequence technology result in large datasets of sequence variants. For the human genome, several tools are available to predict the impact of these variants on gene and protein functions. However, for model organisms such as yeast such tools are lacking, specifically to predict the effect of protein sequence altering variants on the protein level. We present a python framework that enables users to map in a fully automated fashion large set of variants to protein…

Pyntheon: A Functional Analysis Framework for Protein Modifications and Mutations of 83 Model Organisms
TLDR
Pyntheon makes it possible for a larger community of researchers to evaluate their curated proteomics data and interpret the impact of mutations on phenotypes and has multifold functions that can help analyzing the protein mutations impact on the modified residues for a large number of popular model organisms.
A Framework to Analyse and Interpret Mouse Functional Genome by Prioritizing High Impact SNPs
TLDR
A new computational method (mMap) that reduces this gap by characterizing the functional and regulatory impact of allelic variation by prioritizing SNPs that have the potential to mediate a biological phenotype and limits data to human interpretation level.
High Throughput Computational Mouse Genetic Analysis
TLDR
The initial results indicate that genetic factors affecting biomedical responses could be identified through analysis of very large datasets, and they provide an early indication of how this type of ‘augmented intelligence’ can facilitate genetic discovery.

TLDR
A new method and the corresponding software tool, PolyPhen-2, which is different from the early tool polyPhen1 in the set of predictive features, alignment pipeline, and the method of classification is presented and performance, as presented by its receiver operating characteristic curves, was consistently superior.
Evolutionary Constraint and Disease Associations of Post-Translational Modification Sites in Human Genomes
TLDR
It is hypothesized that variants in protein post-translational modification (PTM) sites contribute to phenotype variation and disease and proposes that PTPN11 variants in Noonan syndrome aberrantly activate the protein by disrupting an uncharacterized cluster of phosphorylation sites.
PTMcode: a database of known and predicted functional associations between post-translational modifications in proteins
TLDR
The proposed PTM code aims to compile known and predicted PTM associations to provide a framework that would enable hypothesis-driven experimental or computational analysis of various scales, and provides PTM functional associations of 13 different PTM types within proteins in 8 eukaryotes.
PTMcode v2: a resource for functional associations of post-translational modifications within and between proteins
TLDR
Several methods based on residue co-evolution and proximity to predict the functional associations of pairs of PTMs that the authors apply to modifications in the same protein and between two interacting proteins are developed.

UniProt: a hub for protein information
TLDR
An annotation score for all entries in UniProt is introduced to represent the relative amount of knowledge known about each protein to help identify which proteins are the best characterized and most informative for comparative analysis.
