Nexus Copy Number is a user-friendly desktop application for analysis and visualization of structural variation (copy number, allelic events, and small sequence variations) from CGH and SNP array- and NGS-generated data. The simple and interactive user interface allows for quick review of CNV/LOH/seq. variant results, annotation of samples, and customized report generation. All major statistical methods and algorithms that have become accepted as standards of practice in the field are incorporated into an intuitive, easy-to-use workflow for robust and straightforward analysis.
