has anybody worked with
annovar in the past with worm (Saccharomyces cerevisiae)?
I'm trying to annotate my vcf files but keep getting into trouble, first downloading any kind of data base, then downloading sequences.
I think this is one of the worst documented tools ever.
Can anyone tell me, what am I doing wrong here
# download the gene information annotate_variation.pl -buildver sacCer3 -downdb -webfrom ucsc sgdGene Scedb/ # annotating the vcf file table_annovar.pl jointSamples.vcf Scedb/ -buildver scaCer3 -out jointSamples_annovar.vcf -remove -protocol sgdGene -operation g -nastring . -vcfinput -polish
But with this I get the following error

But when I try to download any kind of sequences, they are not on the
Does anyone has good alternatives for
annovar ( or any alternative, as almost anythin is better than this tool )?
