Alamut Visual

Features of Alamut® Visual

Alamut® Visual, the reference software for human variation exploration

MAIN FEATURES

Alamut Visual is a gene browser supporting human genes (protein coding, non-protein coding and pseudogenes).
It offers a single user interface with relevant annotations gathered from public databases such as NCBI, EBI, UCSC and is compliant with HGVS nomenclature. It allows variants reporting with pathogenicity clues from external sources. Functional impact of variants is assessed by the biologist with relevant prediction tools:

  • Splicing prediction tools (SpliceSiteFinder-like, MaxEntScan, NNSPLICE, GeneSplicer)
  • ESE tools
  • Missense prediction tools (Align GVGD, SIFT, MutationTaster, PolyPhen-2, KD4v)

Alamut Visual contains an advanced BAM NGS alignments viewer with VCF support.

OTHER FEATURES

  • automatic connection to the well-curated Alamut software suite database
  • lab’s variants management and visualization
  • automatic fill in web-based missense prediction tools forms, eliminating human error risks
  • mutation-focused search engine over PubMed abstracts
  • Cited Variants Reference and link to Mastermind® by Genomenon®
  • sequence-based private annotations management and visualization (e.g. primers, probes)
  • standard bioinformatics file formats (e.g., VCF, BAM, BED, GFF)

AVAILABLE ANNOTATIONS

  • Nucleotide conservation (phastCons and phyloP scores)
  • Reference transcripts
  • dbSNP, gnomAD, ESP/EVS variants
  • Genome of the Netherlands (GoNL), Japan Human Genetic Variation Database (HGVD)
  • ClinVar, SwissProt pathogenic variants
  • COSMIC variants (available at no extra cost to both academic and commercial users — users who wish to download the COSMIC database, manipulate or mine it directly would need to obtain it from the Sanger Institute)
  • Functional protein domains
  • Orthologues alignments
  • Links to external locus-specific databases

Alamut Visual complies with the ACMG/AMP Variant Interpretation Standards and Guidelines. Click here for details.



What they say
about Alamut

"I have previously used Alamut Visual in the UK and it is an invaluable resource for variant curation which I was keen to bring into use in my new role in New Zealand. provides a convenient and user-friendly interface which pulls together literature searches, population databases and in silico prediction tools. This enables streamlining of the curation process and saves a lot of time."
