how to annotate somatic mutation?
I have map the tumor-normal pair exome data to genome using BWA and calling somatic mutation using Varcan. how to annotate somatic mutaion? just like classify the somatic mutation to missense_mutation or silent or frame_shift,etc.
thanks in advance.

Online annotation tool VarioWatch ( capable of annotating millions of variants in minutes should be a good candidate to satisfy your expectation.

If you have the VCF file, you can also use wAnnovar:

Ensembl VEP
will perform annotation for all transcripts, provides precomputed sift/polyphen scores, and indicates which variants are in dbSNP (mostly germline with MAFreq) and COSMIC (mostly somatic). It will also annotate regulatory features.

Another tool you may be interested in:

It uses snpEff to annotate all overlapping transcripts for each variant then filters the annotation to identify a single, best transcript isoform with the most severe effect and longest coding sequence.

The prioritization considers transcript biotypes and attempts to avoid pseudogenes and incomplete ORFs.
