Finds the genomic events associated with each of the array CGH samples. Events include whole chromosomal gains and losses, aberrations, transitions, amplifications and their respective counts and sizes. The hmm states has to be computed before using this function.

The default parameters generally work. Threshold for merging may be changed depending on the expected normal cell contamination and/or expected magnitude of the changes. AIC model generally works, however, may need to be readjusted depending on how liberal or conservative one wants to be in finding genomic events. We recommend BIC criterion with delta = 1 for noisier data.
