Hello, I am new to bioinformatics and trying to get annovar to work. I was able to download the databases and get annovar working with the example files.
But when I try to use VCF files, the annotated file's cells have a descriptive string along with the actual score or allele frequency. Like this "ClinPred_pred=." Please check the image below.
This happens with the ex2.vcf example file provided by annovar too, and also even if I convert my vcf to avinput first and try. It works normally with the ex1.avinput file though.
Since these cells are not numbers, I am unable to filter or sort it with excel. So I was wondering if I am missing something. What is the use of this? How do I remove this and should I remove it? Any help would be great. Thanks, Roshan
