No, that's it. I just took some freedom and toyed with the description a
bit more. Please have a look. You may want to shorten it a bit more. It
should be understandable, though.
Another tool that could substitute (semantically) SnpEff is VEP, i.e.
the variant effect predictor by the ensembl.org team. I do not think we
have packaged this yet, though.
