[…] 36 bp flanking each masked segment (referred to as padding regions below) were masked. the reason for the introduction of additional padding regions is that copy number variations are detected using mrcanavar [71] via the read depth in non-overlapping windows of 1 kbp of the unmasked sequence; i.e., the genomic coordinates of these windows may exceed 1 kbp, as they include masked regions. reads […]

[…] and tandem repeats finder 4.07b46. reads were mapped in single-read mapping mode with a hamming distance threshold of < 4 bp. we derived gc corrected absolute copy number in 100bp windows using mrcanavar version 0.5147, a program that predicts from read depth and gc enrichment an absolute copy number. we calculated a mean copy number value for the three combined amy1 regions, amy2a […]

[…] were mapped to the human reference genome, which was masked by repeatmasker and trf programs, using mrfast (v2.0.0.5) and allowing up to 5% mismatches. then, copy number over 5 kb was predicted by mrcanavar (v0.3)., snp genotyping and cnv detection were performed using the illumina infinium hd assay system (humanomni2.5-quad). genomic dna from the twins were tested on duplicated arrays. data […]
