I'm currently designing a workflow to analyze some exome sequencing data (VCF).

Now, I'd like to add OMIM data and HGMD data to my VCF file.

but I couldn't download some database that include them or find any software to annotate this data online or offline.

Do you know where I could find this kind of data file or which software doing those ?

Regards.

Bahar

Hi Bahar,

We use the recommended tool SnpEff for variant annotation in VCFs, mainly to predict AA changes and effects. We also annotate the ID field with DbSNP using SnpSift (under the same project). However, to my knowledge there's also an option to annotate the VCF with several other clinical databases such as OMIM, check this link:

SnpEff:

Hope this helps,
Alon

Another tool that you may find complementary (and which takes snpEff or VEP annotated VCFs as input, and performs additional annotations) is GEMINI. It also transforms the VCF data into a SQLite3 formated database and can contain pedigree information. It has a diverse set of tools to analyze exomes as trios, or select variants that fit specific inheritance patterns, genotype constraints, etc.

oh yes, GEMINI is great. Do you know GIMINI can add publications PMID or the other sours of publications?

It doesn't add any PMIDs. It does all of its annotations based on downloaded BED and VCF files and not any live queries to the web.
