When I run variants_reduction script of Annovar for the mouse variant file, it shows as follows, but this script should support for non-human variants according to the manual, Any suggestions? thank you!

It's not clear from the manual whether is supposed to work for non-human variants. The syntax is similar to but non-human examples are not given.

I have not looked at the code (since it requires registration) but presumably, it uses something like Getopt to check the command-line parameters. So if it says "must be hg18 or hg19" - well, that is what it means.

I would contact the authors for clarification (then post their reply here as an answer, to help others).

Hi, Neilfws,

I've contacted with author for clarification and he suggested me to use instead of using

But please go ahead to contact with author since table_annovar can only produce a table that can be opend in excel but I do need to filter variants from sanger mouse dbsnp data and then I will generate a excel spreadsheet.

also when I run

$ -buildver mm10 snps.annovar.exonic_variant_function mm10db/ -protocol nonsyn_splicing,genomicSuperDups,SC_MOUSE_GENOMES.genotype.vcf,dominant -operation g,rr,f,m -nastring NA

It did not work because SC_MOUSE_GENOMES.genotype.vcf ( downloaded from Sanger) is not a default data under mm10. I do need to figure this out but it is a little complex now.

I forget to mention that mm10db is the data package that i downloaded exactly according to the ANNOVAR manual. there is no variants or dbsnp data in this package. so I have to download variant data (SC_MOUSE_GENOMES.genotype.vcf), but it did not work for at all
