CNVannotator is a web-based tool for annotating copy number variation (CNV) in the human genome. The features include ENCODE regulatory elements, cytobands, segmental duplications, fragile genome sites, pseudogenes, promoters, enhancers, CpG islands, and methylation sites. CNVannotator permits users to apply various filters to reveal subgroups of CNVs, that for example, connected to tumor suppressor genes and oncogenes.
