VepNormalizer modifies a VCF file annotated with the Variant Effect Predictor (VEP). Since the VEP does not use INFO fields to annotate, but rather puts all its annotations in one big string inside a "CSQ" INFO tag it is necessary to normalize it.

VepNormalizer is part of BIOPET tool suite that is developed at LUMC by the SASC team. Each tool in the BIOPET tool suite is meant to offer a standalone function that can be used to perform a dedicate data analysis task or added as part of a pipeline, for example the SASC team's biowdl pipelines.
