As a response to the limited capability of the web server, and in support of the evolving "big data" environment, the number of predictions from a single run of any program in the new AUTO-MUTE 2.0 stand-alone software is now unrestricted and depends only on the quantity of mutants requested in the submitted text file.
Next, single residue substitutions in personal (non-PDB) model structures can now be predicted and may be included in the same text file with mutations occurring in PDB structures; however, for proper processing by the programs, they should be (1) given randomly selected 4-character IDs and named pdbXXXX.ent similar to PDB files, (2) formatted identical to PDB files with respect to their HELIX, SHEET, and ATOM lines, and (3) placed in the main AUTO-MUTE 2.0 folder and used with the manual (-t 1) option when running the programs.
With respect to "minimized average structure" NMR files in the PDB, these pose no difficulty for either the online server or AUTO-MUTE 2.0 since the files each contain a single set of atomic coordinates for their respective proteins.
