There are programs like SNPEff and Annovar, and ensembl's Variant effect predictor, which will take genomic coordinates, and output differences with respect to genes and amino acids.

If you wanted to do a bit more yourself, you could used blastx to compare your DNA sequences to all potential proteins in the organism, and parse the blast output.
