MOAT is a computational system for identifying significant mutation burdens in genomic elements with an empirical, nonparametric method. Taking a set of variant calls and a set of annotations, MOAT calculates which annotations have observed variant counts that are substantially elevated with respect to a distribution of expected variant counts determined by permutation of the input data.
