[ah•la•mut] - noun
1. the software that redeﬁnes the process of mutation interpretation
Alamut is a decision-support software and client server application that integrates genetic information from different sources in one, consistent and convenient environment to describe variants using HGVS nomenclature and help interpret their pathogenic status.
Dedicated to mutation diagnostics, Alamut is used by by clinical and research molecular laboratories worldwide.
- save time with an all-in-one software portal that is well adapted to diagnostic testing
- improve quality with accurate and high quality nomenclature
- increase productivity with an intuitive and easy-to-use graphical user interface
change the way you work. forever.
integration of multiple data sources
Alamut displays gene annotations gathered and assembled from multiple reliable public and private data sources. Based on fi rst-class molecular biology databases such as RefSeq, dbSNP, Ensembl, Uniprot, the UCSC Genome Browser Database and PubMed, the software relieves users from the need to manually collect information from various places.
readiness and ease of use
Alamut relies on a regularly updated data server hosted by Interactive Biosoftware, so there are no tedious setup and maintenance steps on the user side. Once installed on the computer, the software offers a ready-to-use simple and rich graphical environment for mutation interpretation needs.
HGVS nomenclature compliancy
Alamut has a detailed knowledge of the HGVS Mutation Nomenclature Recommendations, so that variations are systematically labeled along the recommendations, and corrected if needed.
prediction tools only a click away
Repeatedly invoking molecular biology prediction algorithms over the Web can be a hassle and time consuming. Alamut relieves the user from the technical intricacies of these online tools by either fully integrating prediction methods (e.g. splice site prediction algorithms) or automatically filling Web forms (e.g. SIFT, PolyPhen-2).
