This package is for version 3.8 of Bioconductor; for the stable, up-to-date release version, see NGScopy.

NGScopy: Detection of Copy Number Variations in Next Generation Sequencing sequencing

Bioconductor version: 3.8

NGScopy provides a quantitative caller for detecting copy number variations in next generation sequencing (NGS), including whole genome sequencing (WGS), whole exome sequencing (WES) and targeted panel sequencing (TPS). The caller can be parallelized by chromosomes to use multiple processors/cores on one computer.
