The UCSF caller

If method == "ucsf-mad", then loci are called using [1] "Finally, to identify single technical or biological outliers such as high level amplifications, the presence of the outliers within a segment was allowed by assigning the original observed log2ratio to the clones for which the observed values were more than four tumor-specific MAD away from the smoothed values."
