BCFtools/csq: Haplotype-aware variant consequences

“current predictors analyze variants as isolated events, which can lead to incorrect predictions when adjacent variants alter the same codon, or when a frame-shifting indel is followed by a frame-restoring indel. Exploiting known haplotype information when making consequence predictions can resolve these issues.” “BCFtools/csq is a fast program for haplotype-aware consequence calling which can take into account known phase.”
