This package is for version 3.16 of Bioconductor; for the stable, up-to-date release version, see CNVgears.

A Framework of Functions to Combine, Analize and Interpret CNVs Calling Results

Bioconductor version: 3.16

This package contains a set of functions to perform several type of processing and analysis on CNVs calling pipelines/algorithms results in an integrated manner and regardless of the raw data type (SNPs array or NGS). It provides functions to combine multiple CNV calling results into a single object, filter them, compute CNVRs (CNV Regions) and inheritance patterns, detect genic load, and more. The package is best suited for studies in human family-based cohorts.
