Copy number variant detection from exome sequencing read depth

Bioconductor version: Release (2.12)

Detection of copy number variants (CNV) from exome sequencing samples, including unpaired samples. The package implements a hidden Markov model which uses positional covariates, such as background read depth and GC-content, to simultaneously normalize and segment the samples into regions of constant copy count.
