N-acetyltransferase-2 (NAT2) is an enzyme that catalyzes the acetylation of aromatic and heterocyclic amine carcinogens. Based on the level of NAT2 enzymatic activity, individuals in human populations
are divided into three acetylator phenotypes: slow, rapid, and intermediate. This web-server implements a support vector machine (SVM) predictor of the human NAT2 acetylator phenotype that uses a
combination of SNPs found in the NAT2 gene positions 282, 341, 481, 590, 803, and 857. The predictor assigns one of the three NAT2 phenotypes based on the genotypes observed for these six SNPs.
