Batch annotation for top hits
After the statistical analyses of a WGA project, usually the first important question that most researchers want to answer is: what are the top hits and their P values? After this they may be even more eager to know, are these top hits located in or close to any gene? If they are located in some gene, then what type of SNPs are they? Are they functionally relevant? --- if they are not non-synonymous coding, not splice changing, then how far are they from the closest exon? If unfortunately they are not in a known gene, how far are they from the closest known gene?
