Is there an easy way to grab the rsids (hg38) of a VCF file? I know one of the tabs can contain RSIDs, but this file doesn't contain any.
I have a software I created for mapping 23AndMe DTC testing to SNPedia, and I'm trying to integrate more DTC testing. (https://www.github.com/mentatpsi/osgenome)
The user found this https://gist.github.com/KlausTrainer/26c2996cf32677e4c107bd8aaee67794 which is a script to use variant summary data to map to the RSIDs, but I'm hesitant to perform a SQL dump to find a table that contains chromosome, postion, and rsID columns.
As a bonus question, 23AndMe reports all positive orientations. How would I go about converting strands to match this orientation? Does the VCF contain information that would allow this action autonomously?
