Recent advances in genomic sequencing technologies have led to an astonishing increase in the size of protein sequence databases. This progress greatly renewed the interest in computational methods aimed at exploiting sequence datasets to explore structural and functional properties of proteins. Particularly, the analysis of correlated mutations has attracted an ever-increasing popularity in the last decade and it is currently one of the most promising tool in structural and computational biology.
