Format

A MutationDefinition object defining:

  • CHARGE_MUTATIONS: Amino acid mutations are defined by changes in side chain charge class.
  • HYDROPATHY_MUTATIONS: Amino acid mutations are defined by changes in side chain hydrophobicitity class.
  • POLARITY_MUTATIONS: Amino acid mutations are defined by changes in side chain polarity class.
  • VOLUME_MUTATIONS: Amino acid mutations are defined by changes in side chain volume class.
