Mutation that activates genes

I am trying to figure out whether the list of my somatic coding mutation activates genes in cancer. I was trying to get this info from polyphen, however it seems that polyphen does not provide this information. Is it possible to get this information from somewhere else.

Hi Avinash,

If you're still looking, consider using CRAVAT. From this post - "Cancer-specific annotations include COSMIC mutation frequencies by tumor type, Vogelstein/Kinzler oncogene/tumor suppessor gene assignments and PubMed hits. Variant- and gene-level annotations and bioinformatic scores are provided to enable interpretation and prioritization of variants identified in sequencing studies, including frameshift and in-frame insertions/deletions, splice site, missense and nonsense. Variants can be submitted either as a Variant Call File (vcf) or in a simple tab-delimited format, based on genome coordinates, by uploading through a graphical web interface or a RESTful web services API." In addition, CRAVAT also provides a CHASM score which is cancer specific and might help you determine whether your mutations activate cancer genes or not.

Sounds like what you might need!
