Copy number variant detection

Copy number variants are amplifications and deletions of exon and chromosome fragments as well as whole exons or chromosomes. The copy number variant detection algorithm is designed to detect copy number variations (CNVs) from targeted resequencing experiments. These can be either gene panels or whole exome sequencing. It identifies CNV regions where the normalized coverage of the sample to be analyzed differs from the control samples in a statistically significant way.
