Add-On Script

Import PennCNV

Author: Sam Gardner, Golden Helix, Inc.

This script imports PennCNV input signal intensity files, where each file contains data for a single sample. The files are expected to have real valued data arranged with a row for each marker and columns containing the marker names, chromosomes, positions, and data values (e.g. Log Ratios and B Allele Frequencies). One spreadsheet is generated for each column of values in the input files.

What is Python?

Python is a clear and powerful object-oriented programming language, comparable to Perl, Ruby, Scheme, or Java. Integrating Python into SVS provides full programmatic access to many of the software's features enabling the augmentation of existing tools, creating entirely new ones, automation of work flows, integration with other programs and more.
