Identification of noncoding cancer "drivers" from thousands of somatic
alterations is a difficult and unsolved problem. Here, we developed a
computational framework to annotate and prioritize cancer regulatory
mutations. The framework combines an adjustable data context
summarizing large-scale genomics and cancer-relevant datasets with an
efficient variant prioritization pipeline. To prioritize high impact
variants, we developed a weighted scoring scheme to score each
mutation's impact through analyzing conservation, loss-of and gain-of
function events, gene associations, network topology and across-sample
recurrence. Cancer specific information is used to further highlight
potential oncogenic relevant candidates.

Our personal statement for residency is the standard length that seems enough for discussing all major points about from education background to other details
