Oncotator: Variant Type SNP/Type of Mutation
I am working on a project with several point mutations. I used oncotator to verify the type of mutation (ie. missense, nonsense, etc) and to see if they were unique mutations or SNPs. I received a variant type of SNP for each and every mutation, does that indeed mean that every mutation was a SNP or is this some type of default. I admit I am new to these databases and need clarification. I am also inquiring whether the indicated type of mutation is accurate...for most the type of mutation was consistent with oncotator, however, I received quite a few discrepancies indicating some of the mutations were splice sites or 3'UTR by oncotator.
