This is the development version of HMMcopy; for the stable release version, see HMMcopy.

Copy number prediction with correction for GC and mappability bias for HTS data

Bioconductor version: Development (3.0)

Corrects GC and mappability biases for readcounts (i.e. coverage) in non-overlapping windows of fixed length for single whole genome samples, yielding a rough estimate of copy number for furthur analysis. Designed for rapid correction of high coverage whole genome tumour and normal samples.
