dinamic: A Method to Analyze Recurrent DNA Copy Number Aberrations in Tumors

In tumor tissue, underlying genomic instability can lead to DNA copy number alterations, e.g., copy number gains or losses. Sporadic copy number alterations occur randomly throughout the genome, whereas recurrent alterations are observed in the same genomic region across multiple independent samples, perhaps because they provide a selective growth advantage. This package implements the DiNAMIC procedure for assessing the statistical significance of recurrent DNA copy number aberrations (Bioinformatics (2011) 27(5) 678 - 685).
