[…] samples, using illumina humanhap550 or 610 snp arrays including 442 samples with matched blood dna samples (supplementary data¬†). tumor-based copy number segments were first calculated by ascat and oncosnp, and then curated manually. tumor samples were excluded if the copy number results were suggestive of noise or if no amplification/deletion events were detected. following thorough quality […]

[…] obtain site-wise posterior probabilities of state occupation. shows an example copy number analysis of chromosome 1 of a colorectal cancer cell line sw837 from an snp microarray dataset using the oncosnp software from yau et al. (). the chromosome exhibits a number of copy number alterations leading to changes in the pattern of the log r ratio and b allele frequency along the chromosome. […]

[…] annovar [] using ncbi refseq database., sample pairs (n = 5) with snp array data, log2 ratios were calculated by comparing the tumor sample signals with pooled normal samples from illumina. then oncosnp r package [] was used to perform segmentation analysis on generating loh and cnv segments. the segmentation results were further manually reviewed to identify missing focal copy number […]

[…] allele-specific pcr chemistry (kbiosciences ltd, hoddesdon uk [])., tumor cin status was determined from existing illumina human610-quad beadchip data on matched tumor and normal dna using oncosnp as described previously []. briefly, copy-number for individual autosomes was estimated by calculating the mode of absolute dna copy-numbers across snps, and the total autosome number […]

[…] performed using the cpdb (http://cpdb.molgen.mpg.de/)., where dna was available, we analysed pre- and post-treatment tumour samples using illumina core exome 24 arrays using standard methods. the oncosnp v2.1 program (https://sites.google.com/site/oncosnp/user-guide) was used in unpaired mode. we used the default top ranked ploidy estimate. a copy number change was called if a region showed […]
