Default phyloP or PhastCons

Hi everyone,

I am looking at phylogeny between 9 plant genomes. I want to look at the conservation of certain elements. I know phyloP and PhastCons are useful tools. However, which one would you recommend? Some people told me that phyloP is good at computing conservation for individual bases whereas PhastCons is good for multibase alignments. However, when reading phyloP documentation, I can compute p-values for entire segments. I am a bit confused.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!
