  Description     : tool to annotate and manipulate genome variants

SnpSift is a toolbox that allows one to filter and manipulate annotated files.
Once the genomic variants have been annotated, one needs to filter them out in
order to find the "interesting / relevant variants". Given the large data
files, this is not a trivial task (e.g. one cannot load all the variants into
XLS spreadsheet). SnpSift helps to perform this VCF file manipulation and
filtering required at this stage in data processing pipelines.

The package will be team-maintained by Debian-med team.
