HMMcopy 0.1.1 – HMM for Detecting Somatic Copy Number alterations in tumour-normal paired Whole Genome Sequencing data

HMMcopy 0.1.1


HMMcopy is a suite of tools to make copy number estimations for whole genome data with GC and mappability correction, then segment and classify copy number profiles with a robust Hidden Markov Model. Designed to work with high coverage whole genome HTS data, it can derive copy number estimations from large (~250GB) aligned BAM files in 2 hours on a single core with minimal memory requirements.
