[ensembl-dev] CADD_RAW is SNV

Hi - 

Thanks, also that was the top portion of the annotated VCF file. I have attached a different section of it (see attached).
A scientist at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai made the following comments about it:

1)  Here is an example of a line and the header as opened in excel. The wrong value is in BH but there might be others. 
     When contacting VEP please check the number/proportion of missense variants that completely lack MAF and 
     other annotation values.

2) Checking the missense variants, there are still issues with columns AO-BP that are mostly empty (most missense variants should be
     present in gnomAD and have proper predictions by various methods), and also many missing CADD values. There are some values 
     that are wrong, such as "gnomAD_AMR" in column BH.

I noticed that all of the variants in your spreadsheet have "intergenic" 
in the Consequence column, and that most (all?) of the columns with missing data pertain to genes or proteins, which are not applicable for intergenic variants, so I would expect them to be empty.

Hope this helps,
