A Python library for creating comutation plots to visualize genomic and phenotypic information

Project description


CoMut is a Python library for creating comutation plots to visualize genomic and phenotypic information.



CoMut can be installed via pip

pip install comut

Colab Quickstart

For those who do not want to install Python or other packages, there is a Google Colab notebook where you can simply upload a MAF file and run the notebook to make a basic comut. This file is also available as a jupyter notebook for local use.


CoMut is now available on biorxiv If you use CoMut in a paper, please cite:

Crowdis, J., He, M.X., Reardon, B., Van Allen, E.M. (2020). CoMut: Visualizing integrated molecular information with comutation plots. bioRxiv doi: 10.1101/2020.03.18.997361v1


There is also a Documentation notebook that provides documentation for CoMut. It describes the fundamentals of creating comuts and provides the code used to generate the comut above.
