The VCF (Variant Call Format) has been developed to standardize the storage of genetic variation, as employed in the 1000 Genomes Project. Here we collect some conventions and extensions to describe an adaptation of the VCF standard definitions for describing splice site variation.variation in splice sites, we call VCL (VCF-like). The basic concept of our VCF adaptation to describe splice site heterogeneity is to collect all information on variants that affect a certain splice site within a single line, similar to multi-variant descriptions. We then propose to extend the standard VCF characterization by specific splice site attributes:
