A statistical method to detect CNV and LOH using depth-of-coverage and B-allele frequencies from mapped short sequence reads in exome sequencing data. We apply ExomeCNV to a cancer exome resequencing dataset. As expected, accuracy and resolution are dependent on depth-of-coverage and capture probe design.
