Hello,

I have to identify both rare synonymous and and functional variants in a humans exome for each gene region.

I know there are some ready to use tools , bus also was suggested not to trust them very much.

Is it true?

I think I will need to start to write my own script, but have no idea, with what to start my code.

So, any suggestions will be appreciated.

Who said that, and why do you trust them? What exactly did you hear?

Some other bioinformaticians; but maybe it is not true. I also think that for such simple purpose there must be ready solutions. Anyway, I will be happy about some advice, which tool to use; Also, it could be interesting to write home made code for learning purposes

You could try VEP or ANNOVAR and look for synonymous variants that fall in exonic splice regions, for example - those are both synonymous and "functional".
