query (test, tesk, lest etc), then a fuzzy query (~) should suffice.

match in every result returned by the query e.g. there is no way to
specify that any hit returned by the query should match "te", and you

If you want to search for mutations on specific locations, use
wildcard queries. To answer your original question, you cannot use a
wildcard character as the first character of a query.
