Development

Mutalyzer 2.0.35 is designed and developed by Jeroen F.J. Laros, with the following exceptions:

  • The LRG parser, as well as the Batch interfaces are written by Gerben R. Stouten.
  • The position converter interfaces (web service and WWW) are written by Gerard C.P. Schaafsma.
  • Current development and maintenance is done by Martijn Vermaat.
  • Automatic extraction of variant descriptions is implemented by Jonathan Vis.

Furthermore we would like to thank the following people for their valuable work on previous versions that acted as a guideline for the development of the current version:

  • Ernest van Ophuizen.
  • Martin Wildeman.
  • Corinne Bareil.
  • Gerben R. Stouten.

Specifications are given by Peter E.M. Taschner and Johan T. den Dunnen.

The Description Extractor is described separately in "Vis JK et al. (2015). An efficient algorithm for the extraction of HGVS variant descriptions from sequences. Bioinformatics, 2015 Dec 1;31(23):3751-7" (direct link).
