Detection of genome wide copy number variations in two chicken lines divergently selected for abdominal fat content

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 4092215
PMID: 24962627
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-15-517

[…] hus, using this array, typically only large CNVRs could be identified.Several algorithms have been developed to identify CNVs, including CNVPartition, QuantiSNP, PennCNV, Birdsuite, Cokgen, Gada, and CONAN [–]. Each algorithm has its own strength and weakness [, ]. In the present study, the PennCNV algorithm was used for CNV detection, and CNVPartition was employed to verify the CNVs detected by P […]


Genome wide analysis reveals single nucleotide polymorphisms associated with fatness and putative novel copy number variants in three pig breeds

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 3879217
PMID: 24225222
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-14-784

[…] ndividuals. Around 0.4% of genome content in people who are unrelated is thought to vary in copy number []. Specific algorithms for CNV detection from SNP chip raw data include ‘PennCNV’, ‘GADA’ [], ‘CONAN’ [], ‘cnvPartition’ and ‘QuantiSNP’, the last 2 of which have been used in this study. Comparative analyses of the above have suggested a preference for QuantiSNP []. The study of CNVs has been […]
