Server for predicting damaging missense #mutations Polyphen2 uses both structure & sequence (eg ASA & conservation)

Polyphen2 includes both structural and sequence features to predict the effect of nonsynonymous substitutions on protein function. Similar to many other methods, Polyphen2 uses evolutionary conservation as one of the features to identify functionally important residues. Integration of 3D-structure, membrane-specific features (PHAT matrix for TM regions) and other features such as protein-domain and active-site are the strengths of Polyphen2 compared to other sequence-based software making it a good tool for prediction.
