I have MAFs annotated with the NCBI Build 37. Some of them have a column named "ref_context" which has a string with 21 nucleotides of the wild type gene, where the nucleotide in the middle is the one that was mutated. Unfortunately, some of the MAFs don't have this column. Therefore, I was wondering if it is possible to get the same MAFs but with the column ref_context.
If this wasn't possible, the other option is to download the reference genome GCRh37 and map the position of the mutation in the gene sequence and get the nucleotides upstream and downstream. I have done that, however the wild type codons don't match in the position these are annotated in the MAF with the codon at that position in the files I have got. I have got the files from UCSC and NCBI but neither match. The gene IDs that I am using are NM_XXXXXX.
Of course getting the MAFs with the ref_context column would be the best solution, so I would appreciate very much if someone knows if I can get the files and could suggest me how.
