Hi,

I work with nonhuman data. I have a bunch of SNPs that I want to predict how deleterious the SNP is. I know there is software out there like sift, polyphen, and provean. The issue I have is that you have to manually input them. I was wondering if anyone has developed a pipeline to mass submit SNP?

I know you can download polyphen and provean but you have to make a .fasta file and file with the SNPs of interest for every protein. I just don't want to do that for thousands of SNPs

I know Sift is a bit better. You can just run an entire VCF and it will give you predictions for everything at one. However, I think Sift isn't the most accurate.

Does anyone use any other software? or does anyone do something different to predict the effect of SNP a protein?

Thanks!!

...are you in the same bioinformatics course as this guy? - How to choose good tools for identifying functional SNPs?

Hahaha no. Just a frustrated grad student. Kevin, you the bomb. You never disappoint.

Can you mass submit for any of those?

Yes, you can bulk query against most of those. Most are available as VCF/BED files as they are essentially annotations tied to a chromosomal position.

Very cool! Any favorites that you prefer? I am running into some that are available for humans :/

From your question you seem to be really opinionated on SIFT. I think SIFT and PolyPhen2 are pretty standard and the way to go. Most sites allow you to upload a file, so you should be fine, unless you need to run more than the allowed volume, at which point you're better off using ANNOVAR.

I was really just listing sift and polyphen. I like sift because you can download the software and it will run an entire VCF file with no other input. Polyphen2, you have to do a lot of manual labor. I would like to find 2 or 3 different software that I can just upload my VCF and go. Maybe that is ANNOVAR? I will check it out. I only ask because my VCF file is HUGE

I only ask because my VCF file is HUGE

Then a local tool install is the way to go for practical reasons of getting timeouts etc with uploads.

Yeah! I am on the prowl for some right now. Do you have any preferred software?

You're going in circles. The question has already been answered; there is no easier way to annotate a VCF. You should really read Kevin's comprehensive answer on the linked post, it along with jared.andrews07's comment on it and my answer here address everything you'll need.

That hurt my feelings a little bit

This is a professional forum run entirely by volunteers, and we need to strike a balance between being a pure knowledge repository and a Q&A forum. When a conversation meanders into personal preferences and repeated discussions on well-established practices, it needs to be discouraged.

You're welcome on biostars slack if you'd like to interact with us in a more informal setting, but that is no guarantee that an ad nauseam discussion will be indulged.

Why? It wasn't an attack, it was an observation.
