  • Any program reports somatic CNVs with tumor fraction?

    I noticed Mutect reports somatic mutations with tumor fraction (ie the percentage of tumor cells that has said mutation). I think this makes sense because it reflects tumor heterogeneity.

    But when I tried ExomeCNV for somatic CNV. It doesn't report tumor fraction. (or maybe it does but how to do that?) Do you know any somatic CNV program that reports tumor fraction?

    Thanks

    It is probably extra difficult to identify a 3-fold duplication in 10% of the tumor cells, since it will look like normal diploid levels + a small increase over the whole sample. And you wouldn't be able to distinguish a 3-fold duplication in 10% of the tumor cells from a 30-fold duplication in 1% of the tumor cells.

    Some programs may report it anyway, but I do not know of any.

      Thanks for your reply. Presumably, I suppose the prevailing FISH/IHC method to detect HER2 amplification/overexpression also suffer from the same problem?

        Best Practices for Single-Cell Sequencing Analysis
        by seqadmin



        While isolating and preparing single cells for sequencing was historically the bottleneck, recent technological advancements have shifted the challenge to data analysis. This highlights the rapidly evolving nature of single-cell sequencing. The inherent complexity of single-cell analysis has intensified with the surge in data volume and the incorporation of diverse and more complex datasets. This article explores the challenges in analysis, examines common pitfalls, offers...
