Canadian researchers introduce a computational method for discerning copy number and loss of heterozygosity patterns from tumor genome sequence data. The probabilistic model, known as TITAN, is designed to provide clues about copy number architecture in mixed cell populations, the team says, including the clonal populations that make up a tumor sample.
