Summary: CNVDetector is a program for locating copy number variations (CNVs) in a single genome. CNVDetector has several merits: (i) it can deal with the array comparative genomic hybridization data even if the noise is not normally distributed; (ii) it has a linear time kernel; (iii) its parameters can be easily selected; (iv) it evaluates the statistical significance for each CNV calling.

Availability: CNVDetector (for Windows platform) can be downloaded from The manual of CNVDetector is also available.
