Next-generation sequencing (NGS) is mainly used to obtain sequence variants (SNVs), however there has been a movement in research and clinical fields to also obtain copy number variants (CNV) from this NGS data.

Nexus Copy Number 8.0 provides a new method, BAM (pooled reference), to streamline the process for analyzing copy number and allelic events from whole genome sequencing (WGS), whole exome sequencing (WES), and targeted panel NGS data.

  • How this new algorithm obtains both copy number and allelic events from NGS data (unique and exclusive to Nexus Copy Number 8.0)
  • Why this Read-Depth method is the most reliable and efficient means to extracting copy number information out of NGS data
  • How the algorithm compares to other CNV estimating algorithms such as CoNIFER and XHMM
