8. Variational analysis

Sequence variation (i.e. mutations, insertions and deletions) can lead to different phenotypes and can thus give information on the coding capacity of certain sORFs. In order to retrieve this information, sequence variation data is extracted from the ENSEMBL variation database8 and associated to sORFs. No filters have been applied on the source or annotation method regarding sorfs, thus a manual inspection is advised.
