SilVA 1.1.1

:: DESCRIPTION

SilVA (Latin for “forest”) is a tool for the automated harmfulness prediction of synonymous (silent) mutations within the human genome. SilVA bases its predictions on a number of features, including conservation, codon usage, splice sites, splicing enhancers and suppressors, and mRNA folding free energy. Given variants in a VCF file, SilVA will rank the rare synonymous variants according to their predicted harmfulness.
