Flexible annotation options

Given a list of variants, ANNOVAR can perform:

  • Gene-based annotation, identifying whether a protein coding change has resulted using your gene definition system of choice
  • Region-based annotation, identifying affected genomic regions that lie outside protein-coding regions
  • Filter-based annotation, identifying known variants documented in public and licensed databases

Ready-to-go annotation

ANNOVAR works with hundreds of pre-compiled, up-to-date annotation sources including all tracks from the UCSC Genome Browser. When HGMD is licensed with ANNOVAR, it provides comprehensive annotation for all published inherited disease mutations. Working with non-human genomes? ANNOVAR provides annotation for diverse species including mouse, fly, worm, yeast and many more.



Easy integration

As a command line Perl program, ANNOVAR can run as a standalone application on diverse hardware systems where standard Perl modules are installed. Configuration of the Perl source code enables easy integration into your own or third party variant annotation pipelines.

ANNOVAR runs on Linux, Mac and Windows systems with standard Perl modules installed.
