Abstract

Computational methods have traditionally struggled to predict the effect of mutations in antibody-antigen complexes on binding affinity. This has limited their usefulness during antibody engineering and development, and their ability to predict biologically relevant escape mutations. Here we present mCSM-AB, a user-friendly web server for accurately predicting antibody-antigen affinity changes upon mutation which relies on graph-based signatures. We show that mCSM-AB performs better than comparable methods that have been previously used for antibody engineering. mCSM-AB web server is available at http://structure.bioc.cam.ac.uk/mcsm_ab.
