2010 Computer applications in the biosciences : CABIOS  
Introduction CNVineta is a flexible data mining tool for the analysis of copy number variations (CNVs) in large case-control SNP array data sets. The tool is available as an R statistical package.  ...  CNVineta offers a flexible and fast access to CNVs by allowing for a quick graphical overview in large case-control datasets.  ...

In this study, we performed a multi-step genome-wide case-control analysis to interrogate the presence of disease-relevant rare copy number variants.  ...  CCZ1 (0.13 % cases, 0.01 % controls) and a 134 kb large duplication upstream of the KCNK9 gene at 8q24.3 (0.22 % carriers among cases, 0.03 % carriers among controls).  ...  We thank the WTCCC consortium for access to UC case/control data sets and appreciate the support of the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Biomedical Research Centre at Guy's and St Thomas'  ...
