HGVS format converter


The script will take as input either an SNV or an INDEL SubjectDetails .csv file. Then depending on the annotation type, it will add extra columns: location, genomic_HGVS, cDNA_HGVS, prot_HGVS "location" is in UCSC format to make it easy to pass on to genome browsers.

Usage would be like this: svainput.SubjectDetails.SNV.csv > sva.hgvsoutput.csv

Below is a list of mutation types that are converted to HGVS format. The HGVS standards are taken from

#NON_SYNONYMOUS_CODING aka "missense change" , e.g. p.T26C amino acid Tryptophan-26 changed to a Cysteine
#SYNONYMOUS_CODING aka "synonymous change" , e.g. p.= the protein has not been experimentally analyzed, but no change is expected
#CODING_DISRUPTED_FRAMESHIFT aka "frame shifts" , e.g. p.R97fs there is a frameshift detected - short description is given (no support for fsX# yet)
#CODING_DISRUPTED_OTHER aka "unknown effect" ? , e.g. p.? protein has not been analysed, and effect is expected but difficult to predict
#STOP_GAINED aka "nonsense change" , e.g. p.T26X amino acid Tryptophan-26 changed to a stop codon
#STOP_LOST aka "no-stop change" , e.g. p.X110Q stop codon at position 110 changed to a Glutamine (no support for extX# yet)

Mutations types that are not converted are given blank "-" entries instead of HGVS formatted entries

Here are the mutation types not currently converted:
