[…] developers of variant annotation tools have developed a standard for reporting gene-centric annotations that has simplified post-processing of variants after annotation. finally, tools such as vcfanno () have been developed that can flexibly add fields to variants in a vcf file based on relatively sophisticated logic and data transformations, reducing the number of tools required to bring […]

[…] of the germline samples were also in the whole exome sequence sample set. the effect of normalized variants was annotated using dbnsfp, and population frequencies of variants were annotated using vcfanno with 1000 genomes databases. here we report only mmp20 variants found in coding regions., summary statistics of our genome-wide analysis can be downloaded from the public repository figshare […]

An excellent tool, simply makes gemini the most flexible, yet powerful annotation and interpretation tool.
Easy to learn, fast running, with minimal resource requirements.
