Hi Kanwar,

This tool in Galaxy uses the same expressions as the line command version (to my knowledge). A list of the possible expressions is listed here. The parenthesis are optional when there is just a single expression.

Hopefully this helps,

Galaxy team

I have a VCF file and I want to filter it for nonsynonymous/ deletion/ insertion  seq variations. Once I filter this file and compare between tumor vs normal samples and then annotate such variations.  I believe I can filter this file using SnpSift and then can annotate with SnpEff, When I try to use Snsift filter it just says arbitrary expression. Are there rules how to use expression for a particular filter with in galaxy. If  any one has used SnpSift in galaxy may share their expertise.
