How to Detect Copy Number Variations in Next Generation Sequencing Data and Integrate with Gene Expression Data Using Partek Software
Copy number variations (CNV) are a common form of structural variation, accounting for approximately 10% of human genomic DNA. Although CNVs receive less attention than do single nucleotide variations (SNVs), they are a risk or a protective factor for various diseases and account for differences between individuals. A possible consequence of CNVs is an increase or decrease of expression levels of affected genes, a phenomenon that can be studied by combining DNA-Seq with RNA-Seq data. In this video we will teach you how to detect copy number variations in your NGS data and how to integrate it into your gene expression study.
