Hi Julie,

The /info/assembly endpoints can provide cytoband information, for 

Sift and Polyphen scores are provided by default on all the VEP 
endpoints, for example 
as well as on the /overlap/translation endpoint when variants are 
requested, for example 

It is usually worth running a basic search on the main page, 
rest.ensembl.org, as it can help find the data you are looking for.

In general, we are always happy to look into providing more of our data 
via the REST API.
Additionally, we are working on a new version of the REST API. While 
some data might not be easily made available through the current REST 
API, if you let us know what data you want and how you are planning on 
using it, we can use this to drive our future REST API.
