We are looking for testers for updates in our VCF annotation tool Jannovar that was published in . Jannovar offers functional annotation, similar to Annovar and we put a lot of work in keeping its good speed, improving its flexibility, and preciseness in the prediction of protein changes.
If you are looking for an alternative to Annovar or VEP then Jannovar might be useful for you and we would like to ask for you to test our updated version on your data and give us feedback.
You can find binary builds of the latest version (0.11) on GitHub here: https://github.com/charite/jannovar
Synopsis after downloading and extracting:
# java -jar jannovar-cli-0.11.jar download hg19/refseq # java -jar jannovar-cli-0.11.jar annotate data/hg19_refseq.ser examples/small.vcf # ls [...] small.jv.vcf [...]
We are now looking for users who want to try the software on their VCF files and report any problems they stumble over (failure of functional annotation yields [ERROR] lines in the output which we can then use for fixing the problems). We also welcome all other feedback, feature requests and bug reports.
