[…] of these features are listed as follows., a large number of sequence features are calculated: 1) position-specific scoring matrices (pssms) []; 2) predicted solvent accessibility using the sspro and sspro8 programs []; 3) predicted native disorder by disopred []; 4) the dscore that represents the difference between the psic [] scores for the wild type amino acid residue and mutant amino acid […]
