MSeq-CNV is an R program to detect copy number variation (CNV) from Sequencing based on Multiple samples. The algorithm uses a mixture density and models the number of mate-pairs using binomial distribution accounting for the insertion size and a Poisson distribution in each genomic position for computing the read counts. MSeq-CNV is well suited for diploid NGS data.
