[…] waves. we use circular binary segmentation to segment the minimum distance and maximum a posteriori estimation to infer de novo cnvs from the segmented genome. compared to penncnv on simulated data, minimumdistance identifies fewer false positives on average and is comparable to penncnv with respect to false negatives. genomic waves contribute to discordance of penncnv and minimumdistance […]
